    I would like to upgrade my rotors on my DJI phantom 2. Any suggestions?

    Why do you want to do that?. The stock props work better than any 3rd party props.

    There's a lot of negative discussion about Carbon Fibre props, but I use ARRIS 9443 (NON self tightening) so you'll need prop nuts & thread lock like Loctite 242/243 (DON'T use red threadlock or you'll need an oxy torch to undo them). I buy them through Helipal.com
    ** Worth noting that CF props are rarely balanced out of the box so you may need to balance them...

    ** Yes, yes I know people will say they make little difference, but they weigh 8g each compared to 12g OEM props. That could potentially give you a whole extra minute flying time! I think they're smoother & more responsive also. (Just my opinion)
