    Thoroughly enjoying my new P2V I got last week - but several flights later coupled with late delivery of prop guards and I am at zero spare propellers... Ack!

    Having Amazon'd Ebay'd and combed through the rather sparse listing of dealers from DJI website I am somewhat leery at the reviews and apparent incompatibility and poor quality of knockoff props. Does anyone have a regular and/or reputable dealer through which you would recommend I can order spare props stress free?

    Thanks all - Cheers to many future flights and a growing quad community!

    I just bought spares from Helipal.com in Hong Kong from New Zealand, parcel arrived 2.5 days later !!!! ... insane speed and service I thought, .... so I am going to give them all my P2V spares business.

    Thanks! That's a good start, were the props seemingly balanced and fantabulous or... workable?

    Helipal is where I buy my props and accessories - great experience with everything working perfectly.

    I've seen comments on this forum about how bad knockoff props were when someone tried them out.

    I happily rock a set of prop guards that have saved the props 3-4 times at least,
    and don't feel any less manly as a result. Would suggest that prop guards and
    authentic props would work out more economical than buying set after set
    of knock offs - that are potentially way unbalanced or have miscast center holes etc.
