    I just replaced my propellers for the first time. The replacements were quite stiff to tighten the first time.... Almost felt like cross threading but they were on correct and the first 1-1/12 revolutions were very smooth. My first set of propellers went on super smoothly so this has me worried.

    Should I be concerned? I have a P3P with the new motors... All the P3 props should be the same, right?

    Further info, I have one spare set that came with the phantom and another backup set that I ordered. All of these are having the same stiff feel.

    Thanks.

    As long as they are black on black and silver on silver, that's quite normal.

    If the are DJI brand, installed on the correct motors, and tightened up you should be just fine.

    I've been flying all weekend with these "stiff props" .... Absolutely no issues. Thanks for putting my mind at ease.
