    I just received my replacement Phantom 1 from Amazon and it came with the self-tightening props for the Phantom 2. Will these work on the Phantom 1 and if yes, how to you get them balanced..I have a balancer for the older props. Thanks in advance.

    yes, they'll work on a Phantom 1, so long as it's a newer Phantom 1 that has the screws threaded for them.

    here's how to balance them

    The screws look just the same as the one I had before with flattened sides on the shafts but the propsthey supplied this time, the self tightening ones, thread on smoothly and seem to tighten down.

    By the way, the video won't load right now...says try again later.

    Thanks for the info, Gizmo. I think I'm good to go.
