    Just put the plastic vision props on my Phantom 1. It seems like it was extremely sensitive and was constantly adjusting itself just to maintain a hover. In all fairness it was kind of windy out but not too bad, ive certainly flown in worse. Is this what I should expect from the new props? I am going to go put my old carbon fiber phantom 1 props back on and drive out to the same place for a comparison but just wanted to see if there were any quick answers before I do.

    I realize my descriptive skills are somewhat lacking but it just seemed like it was very hard to do anything smooth, even flying in a straight line its like the phantom was twerking just to accomplish a straightforward command. I did not adjust any settings with the NAZA after putting the new ones on. I seem to remember in another thread someone did say they adjusted something.

    PV props are much more sensitive to requiring balancing for good flight (they're heavier and carry more momentum). I think they are a bit more twitchy in the wind than 8" props, but after running them for a few flights, I didn't care to go back to the 8".

    Not at the moment. If you get 9" props, the first thing I would do is but a good prop balancer and check on YouTube to see how to use it. It will make 99% of the difference between great and horrible flight characteristics when you change props.

    I put them on my P1 and, as luck would have it, not a problem. They work fine. Prop guards don't fit anymore so I ordered some 9" guards which are coming from the Alpha Centauri system and won't be here until the next ice age.
