    Fast forward to 4:55 in this video Colin makes mention of new Phantom props that reduce jello and will now come standard of the Phantom.

    Interesting.

    (but if they were truly jello free,. they wouldn't bother with a chunky isolation mount on the Phantom Vision!).

    I do wonder when such props will truly become available, as I wouldn't mind trying them out.

    But it's a bit frustrating seeing them show all these new products that they say will be out at end of Q2 (that's 9 weeks), when current dealers can't even supply users with replacement shells, etc.

    At the end of the video, Colin said "Talk to your dealer, if you're an existing customer and you need the new props, call your dealer, they'll send you some for free."

    Yeah RIGHT. I'm sure that's gonna go over well.

    My Phantom must have shipped with them and they gave me an extra set of 4 in the box. Haven't seen jello yet with stock props

    Really? That's great! How long ago did you get it? And from where?
