    Hey guys, I have the first generation phatom, having the zenmuse gimbal as well my flight times arnt great. I accidentally shut my prop in my case and damaged it, I took it for a test fly today and flew awkwardly. I would like to get new props, but can't find something that I'm really interested in. I have seen the graupner 8x5 props but understand you have to ream them out, honestly, I don't have the best of luck with DIYs and would like props that bolt right on. What are some good props that won't burn the motor out, preform better than stock, pre-drilled, and maybe even increase flight time. Thanks

    Those are for the Phantom 2, not the Phantom 1.

    careysb, does your Phantom have the black and silver prop nuts (and cross-threaded motors)? If so, you can get the regular props from the Vision (the soft plastic white ones) with the self-locking nuts built in. If not, then the ones Phantasmic linked are probably your best bet.
