    I`ve been reading around and i have found that some guys think that the 8" props are better for filming, you get a smother flight, less Jello, and things like that.
    What do you guys think?

    Thanx!

    The 2+ is very smooth straight out of the box

    Stick to DJI stock props and let the gimbal do its magic.
    Gimbal is in top of its class in performance and at the bottom for durability.
    The camera is in the middle of amateur and sub-pro.

    I think you should stick with the 9" props for which the Phantom 2 was designed. Many Phantom 1 pilots upgrade to the 9" props for increased performance. The 8" props are smoother because they have less lift. Just go easy on the sticks.
