    Hello pilots
    Some example of how I film http://www.dronefotofyn.dk/eksempler
    I need the phantom to have as smooth movements as possible. The carbon fiber propellers has a very nice response time and makes it fly very stable. But how will longer 9x4.7 affect this compared to the 8x4.5?
    Which ones will give longest flying time?
    Are smaller better for smooth rides

    Also I tried plastic 3 bladed propellers after I read that someone has success with them, but they are so bad I actually cant believe it. The soft plastic gives them sad response time.

    Also anyone tried both these types? http://www.ebay.com/itm/DJI-Phantom-2-V ... 338bdba08b
    http://www.ebay.com/itm/2-Pair-8-Carbon ... 2c73b2aaad

    I ask a lot. I am from Denmark and if I order these they most likely will cost me a fortune since the Danish tax crap charge loads of money.
    Thanks

    For me, stock Phantom 2 props give the best response and longest flight times.

    The Gray ES 300 blades are amazing on my P2, don't know about P1. They are 50% quitter and much more stable, especially ascending and descending.

    These look the same as the stock P2 props, except in black?

    They are, so I've no idea why someone would say that they're better than the stock P2 props. They are exactly the same 9443 props.
