    I'm new here and just purchased a phantom 1.1.1 recently. I wanted to upgrade my props so I ordered some Graupner 3-Blade eProp, 9x5" (23x12cm).
    I just wanted to know if there is anything more to the installation other than buying the nuts and tightening them down. Any advice would be helpful. Thank you in advance.

    I saw a guy on you tube said those gave less flight time I would send them back

    3 bladed props are inherently less efficient than 2 bladed props, so don't expect any advantage.

    What are you trying to accomplish? There are hundreds of postings on this website regarding props. If you're trying to increase flight time then get a set of Phantom 2/Vision 9443 props. They're a little less stable than the stock 8" props, but that's not a big deal.

    True! There is only one way to go here!!

    Phantom 2/Vision 9443 or 9450 props (AND NOT THE CHEAP CHINESE version)

    I spend way too much money on carbon props and cie... at the end of the day P2 stock prop ARE the BEST (longest flight time).

    Cheers
