    Oops I didn't write in the comments, me bad!

    My question is other than obvious cracks what should one look for to decide when a new set of props is needed.

    Cracks, chips, worn tips.

    My P2 props are about 12 mos. old.

    I expect that much more if they don't strike anything.

    I wouldn't worry so much about the age of them. I would be more concerned with any damage that may have have occurred from a crash or tip-over landing or taking off, i.e — chips, breakage.
