    I got my Phantom 2 today! The set up and install went pretty smoothly except one thing. One of the props (Grey one) didn't not spin on as smoothly. The threads at the top don't let it go on as smooth. Once it gets past the rough patch it goes on OK. I was going to call DJI but apparently they don't have a tech support number (not that I could find anyway).

    I was just wondering if you guys think it's a problem. The prop otherwise seems to be working fine. Thanks! If all is well the first flight will be tomorrow!

    Did you try the extra gray one?

    I'm a newbie as well. I got my 2 weeks ago. I say don't worry about it. As long as it's flush, your fine. It's self tightening so don't worry about it flying off or anything. Enjoy it

    Yes I tried one of the extra props and it did the same thing. At first I thought it might have been the prop, but its the threading at the very top of the motor.

    Ok. I think I will give it a go tomorrow. I'll let you know how it goes!
