    I'm a little confused about which props come with the P3 and are best for it. 9450 or 9459 Thrust Boosted? I was going to order 3-4 pair from B&H and noticed a bunch of props fit the P3


    Thanks

    My P3-P, (got it last week), came with the 9450 props.
    BTW, still waiting for my 2nd battery and the prop guards!

    Because they'll spin off when your bird decelerates.

    The P3 and Inspire use active braking on their ESCs and motors.
    It Inspire's had problems early on and they had to develop a new way to lock their props on.
    A few users lost props in flight.
    DJI developed the composite hubs to hold the props on the P3.
    They are more "grippy" than metal to metal.
