    I ordered 2 sets from amazon. It came in a packaged obviously postmarked somewhere in China. They looked identical with the black and silver tips and white blades. However, the material the blades were made of we're junk. I put them on my Phantom 2 Vision and it wouldn't even lift off the ground. I could hear the blades rubbing the top of the phantom outer shell. So....next order for props will be direct from DJI.

    Motion RC has genuine props. After searching around and seeing the junk that's floating around (or trying to float lol. No pun intended) purporting to be authentic I found that Motion RC has genuine props and ordered a bunch. Pretty good prices too.

    I ordered two sets from Dave's Racing link above and they shipped the next morning. This is my second order from them and so far they have been very promt shipping and have good prices on top of that.

    Yeah. Just bought Dji props from Daves motors and they were priced better also.
