    I just purchased a 2 V+ a couple of months ago. I really enjoy using it, but I live in a neighborhood and I have gotten some strange looks by walkers passing by. This drone seems to be pretty loud. You can easily hear it from several hundred feet. Are there any rotors that more quiet vs the stock rotors?

    Thanks
    Richard

    Yeah... They are quieter, but it is hardly stealth mode!! It is virtually silent at 200m, but underneath in particular will always be quite loud.

    I've read nasty things about the O-XOXO props on this forum. People saying they are basically junk. Do you agree?

    Silent/quiet props would be a great project and should be possible. :D

    :eek: What?
    They are made in China, but they are awesome. I liked the 9443s but 9450 is far superior. Try them out and you'll know. I sent all my new stock props to a member on here absolutely free. I now have a nice collection of c/f 9443s up for grabs. The 3 bladed props I tested were only fit for the trash. Hey, it's a hobby within a hobby! :lol:
