    Hi

    I just bought a second hand dji phantom 1.

    I am flying with the standard props. I have also got carbon props. Which will fly better?

    And which settings do I need here for voltage cutoff? Using 2200mah, 3s

    Thanks for the help.

    The defaults for my FC40 (which is a P1) were set at:

    L1: 11,3 - 0,6 - 10,7 (No load - Loss - Loaded)
    L2: 11.2 - 0,6 - 10,6

    If possible ask the previous owner whether he set those values deliberately and why he came to those values.

    +1, especially if you're using the same battery they did.

    Barring that, the values Ben posted are a good place to start, then you can test from there to see if you need/want to tweak them.
