    Looking for some suggestions on what prop guards and propellers to get for my phantom.

    Also gonna be needing some new batteries, can you suggest a good quality battery. Longer lasting
    is better! as well as a charger.

    For batteries, I don't wanna do any mods, just plug em in :)

    For prop guards there is only one product and that is from dji themselves, available in America now, and in europe when the shipment arrives, due any time now. Batteries are plentiful but never cheap, make sure they fit the phantom, some batteries with the correct spec ( 2200 mAh, 11.1v 30c) can be a bit too long to fit inside. Hope this helps.

    Holly cow, I paid $70 for a battery and I can get 3 for the price of half one!

    What do you guys do in terms of charging them? I bought a charger that can charge 2 at a time yesterday....but with my purchase
    of 3 more through hobbyking, I'll have 5...

    Where has the best props? Need some of those i think!

    Best price I saw for carbon fiber props. They came balanced and have "key" for Phantom motor shaft.
    They are 8x4.5 but you may need 9x4.7 for heavier Phantom.
