    Hi there!

    I've just bought a set of 8" carbon fiber propellors from DSLRpro. They mention the need to adjust the gains on the phantom but I cannot find any instructions or values to use.. Can anyone help here?


    Thanks!

    Hi Davis,

    I picked up a set from DSLRpro during their xmas sale as well and I am trailing along. You might want to call DSLRpro as they have been helpful for me on other issues.

    I do need to say that, from reading here, it seems like CF's are more for advanced flyers as they chip/break pretty easily when compared to the stock 1.1.1 props. I actually thought CF's would be stronger, so I have been holding off until I destroy my stock ones.

    Good luck!

    Thanks for the link. Apparently no adjustment is needed with the 8" props. Thanks!
