    Has anyone had a problem with thier p2 prop blades touching thier props?Just got the red/white pairs and don't seem right.I even unloosened them to make sure I hadn't done them up too tight.I wouldn't even dare start it like the way it is.

    You may have prop guards for a different Phantom. There are two sizes. The P2 has longer blades than the P1 and therefore has bigger prop guards. Hope you get it sorted. Either way, DON'T try to fly or spool up the motors as you'll only damage something. You'd be better off flying without.

    I read a similar post some weeks ago. The prop-guards in that case (also red/white) were third party knock-offs, not DJI, and I think that was the reason they didn't fit.
