    Your gonna want props with a composite hub. Metal hubs could back off fitting the dynamic breaking

    Stay away from eBay unless you are buying from the dji store

    Thanks for your response. Please elaborate on dynamic breaking, what it means and also please elaborate on composite hubs if you have time. Thanks again

    Dynamic breaking is when you are flying along and let go of the stick. The P3 will come to a stop and during so, it uses the motors and props to do so. In doing so, it can cause the props to come off if you are using the Metal ones. Also the newer props for the P3 I believe have a different pitch to them since they changed the way the engines sit to avoid the prop wash issue they had with the P2. Hence why you now have a much better decent rate with the P3 over the P2.

    The pitch is the same in all 9450 props. "94" means the prop is 9.4 inches long. "50" means the pitch is 5.0".
