    Why does our Phantoms make such a noise when in the air ????? The yuneekQ500 is so quiet compared to the Phantom.
    Are there any quieter props that we can use ??????

    Just a thought you understand.

    Yuneec = longer props rotating slowly = relatively quiet
    P3 = shorter props spinning fast = noisier

    Changing props will only degrade your P3's performance
    Nothing you can do about it

    What props are you using?
    I have used the self tightening ones that come with FC40.
    They were Significantly quieter than Phantom 2's 9443 Props but gave 2 mins lesser flight time!
