DJI “Upgrade” props – first tests on stock Phantom 2

November 12, 2014

A closer look at the new DJI “upgrade” props I was sent that will be coming out as part of the upgrade package for Phantom 2 and Vision+. Are they the same as the E300 thrust boosted? Maybe…

Other subscribers have reported the 9450 prop gives a better climb performance, but I wanted to see if they had any impact on flight time by doing a back-to-back hover test of the original versus upgrade props in near identical conditions.

My “On the Kitchen Table” videos are mainly aimed at newcomers to multirotors, quadcopters, drones and UAVs, particularly to the DJI product range, and the Phantom line in particular. I have how to’s, product reviews, tips, tricks, hints and information for beginners and those in the early stages of the hobby. I film “on the kitchen table” to show people that, like me, you don’t need a workshop and an array of specialist equipment and years of experience to get started and progress with flying these amazing aircraft and enjoying making great aerial videos and stills. So if you have bought, or are thinking of buying, a DJI Phantom, Phantom FC40, Phantom 2, Phantom 2 Vision or Vision+ or Plus, or even building your own DJI Flamewheel F450 or F550, we can do it… on the kitchen table!
