    Hi,
    Other than as a result of some sort of damage when to put new propellers on the P4?
    Thanks ... Ed

    You should replace the props if they are damaged. Carefully check them for damage prior to each flight. If all looks okay, you can continue to use them -- for years potentially.

    Good to know. Mine came with 2 sets and I didn't see anything for guidance on this.
    Thanks ... Ed

    do the props get damaged or wear off from common use (no crash or contact with something else, like branches or grass)???

    I'd only replace props if they were actually damaged. Still using the original set that came with all of my P3 aircraft & my P4. Only changed the Vision+ props after Night Fury brought her down.

    If you don't crash and or strike anything with the props, they could still develop tiny cracks around the hub area or the inside could become worn down from improper installation and/or storage. So, it's a good idea to always check them prior to each flight just to be safe.
