    Does anyone know where I can buy replacement blades for my Phantom? I found several blades, but the shaft size was way too small; 5mm versus the 8mm required for the Phantom.
    Thanks!

    Thanks! It looks like they are the same company as the web page is nearly identical. But, neither says if I'm buying a pair of CW/CCW blades or just one blade. Sent them an email to hopefully clarify this issue. Thanks again for the lead!

    you're right! same company!! (same address!) funny.
    I forget which one I ordered thru (can check when I get home from work),

    But they come as a set, one CW+one CCW
    similar to the extra set that comes with the Phantom, but in black.

    at that price, you'll probably want to buy a few sets, just in case.

    I imagine most other DJI sellers might also have the black ones in stock.

    10" !?
    If you take a look at your Phantom, you'll see that when the props are at their nearest points, there's only about 1.75inches of space.. those 10" props will hit each other.
    unless you plan to chop/trim the props (and then try to balance them if that's even possible). and then who knows how the craft will perform.

    You're right. I was apparently looking at an article about another DJI model.
