    The Vision props seems much more noisy than the P1. Anyone know whether there's any way to make them any quieter?

    Nothing we can do. I can't believe how much noise they make. I can't do much night flying in my neighborhood because I know it will bother my neighbors. I can fly all my other quads at night at least. It seems to just be the design and I'm sure we will see some aftermarket props down the road that might help with this issue.

    I think I might try the props from the P1 to see what they sound and fly like. As the lift is a product of swept area and rotational speed, the smaller area of the props is likely to give reduced lift unless the motors rotate faster.... I'll give them a go and see how they sound and fly but will wait for a good flying day just in case of 'issues'.
    I seem to remember seeing Colin Guin demoing a Vision fitted fitted with black, presumably carbon fibre props. Hopefully, getting the correct props will sort this one out.
