    As I believe, the 1045= ten inch prop with a 4.5 inch pitch (every rotation climbs 4.5 inches)
    8045= eight inch prop 4.5 inch pitch
    I dont think 10s would work because they would hit each other, but I may be wrong.

    is that what the sticker on the Phantom says? I never looked (I removed my stickers).

    But that info is NOT meant for Phantom, but for bigger quads and hex's.
    I'm not quite sure what it really entails, but guess bigger voltage batteries means the props can't be too big or they'll stress out or something.

    Phantom's can only take up to a 9" prop, anything bigger and they'll hit each other, as well as the shell.

    Yah thats the labeled.. So i should be using 1045 bcoz im using 3s? Or most of it using 3s.??? Unless i used 4s then i can used 8045 prop's nway.. Althou nothing wrong i guess never had a problem using 8045 i guess but the stress on the motor or whtever may affect would be sooner.. Or else the labeled is wrong lol... Nway confusing..
