  1. There are plenty of tests of the MP with 8331 props, but I have not seen any test of the MPP with 8330 props. Are there any? Am really curious to see how battery time and noise levels are affected.

  2. can you just put on the other propellers and are ready to go or does the mavic or anything else needs to be set up sot hat it knows that now other props are installed?

  3. Hi Billy, thanks for the good work in general. I have a question: some people have reported issues with "vibrations" with the new propellors, at least in the beginning, or alternatively, the need to update the firmware to deal with the new design. Any thoughts or experiences on that?

  4. J'ai testé les nouvelles hélices du mavic pro et voici mon verdict: elles sont moins bien que les originales pour ces raisons: la différence de bruit est quasi similaire à l'oreille, également elles font baisser les performances de vol du mavic car elles sont plus souples et donc moins réactives. J'ai également vu un déséquilibre de stabilité lors de la descente verticale. Test effectué sans présence de vent.

  5. I bought a set of the low noise blades, mounted them yesterday, took the drone outside and YIKES. right off the bat it shook so bad i thought it was going to knock the gimbal off, took it to about 15 ft and right back to the ground, put the factory props back on flew like the drone is supposed it, sent a note to DJI, they said when using the low noise props on the mavic pro I need make sure I have the latest upgrade installed, ( I do) to calibrate the IMU and compass, so today I re-calibrated the IMU and will have to go outside to calibrate the compass as there's too much metal in my kitchen, it's 32 degrees outside, sooo maybe…DJI suggested that if this IMU re-calibrate doesn't do it I'm ON MY OWN, they sent this note back this morning,

    "If you updated your unit last week it means that it is in the latest firmware version because we have not released a new firmware version for Mavic Pro.

    Please calibrate the IMU, Compass and Vision sensors to see if you will experience the same issue. If the problem persists you need to use the original propellers to avoid any flight issue in using the low noise propellers."

    we'll see when I take it outside again, but I might have just pissed away $20.00 ???? *#&$%#&$^%#*$^

  6. actually for this test also not reflect what actual propeller effect it is.
    after my test . i would said DJI are success design this low noise propeller . actually its should call low noise "tone" propeller . its noticable by the low tone which is much less annoying or scary propeller noise from the previous design.
    like for this new low noise tone propeller design.

  7. Honestly I don't know why Dji called this props low noise rather should be called slightly quieter props. I was flying around 170 feet high and i was able hear drone without any problems . With new props mavic looks much better but i was really expected low noise props…

  8. The more slanted design would increase lift if (!) the engine had more power. However, the engine RPM will most likely be LOWERED by this new design, hence the decreased sound emission. In real aircraft we do this by changing the propeller pitch and thus changing engine RPM. Could someone compare the engine RPM during hover with the old and new props?

  9. My low noise props arrived yesterday and I flew with them today. I wasn't expecting too much, but was very surprised that at 50 feet away in an open field I could barely hear the Mavic hovering and acceleration was also much quieter. I'll attribute this to a lower overall tone to the prop noise – pleasantly surprised!

  10. Saw a video where the Mavic Pro noise level was measured with just the engines running and no props, then with the OEM props, and then the quieter props. The engine alone noise level was just a few decibels lower than with either props. Seems to me the engines are the main cause of noise and a sound absorbing wrap around the engine nacelle might  be more effective than quieter props. Be interested in seeing if that would work.

  11. NICE, I tried last month (sept) to get some back ordered so I had them text me when they were in stock so I  ordered me up two pairs and I get a message it will ship in 15-20 days WHAT?? and they are in stock I contacted them not very happy and I was told it takes that long to send order to warehouse and for the order to be filled out and shipped what a crock. so today has been day 16 and STILL does NOT show them being shipped I am very ticked off at this point I wish I had another more reliable vendor but I have 16 days into them now I guess I should of learned my lesson with my mavic, sorry just venting happy flying.

  12. Thanks Kyle, this answers my question! I was wondering if they would be worth the upgrade, and it sounds like they might be. Any way to draw less attention is a huge plus when flying a drone in my opinion.

  13. Billy, since you have some nice RPM telemtry directly on the controller, it would be an interesting data-point to add to the otherwise subjectiveness aspect. I find it sounds like the blades run at lower RPM and that makes total sense when you look at the larger blade.

  14. Don't get me wrong, I am not trying to get in your way of making money from your Amazon affiliate link. You just need to do your homework before going to the park and making a video that shows what anyone with at least some knowledge or ability to think about what is happening logically already knows.
    The old props are called "bullnose" props. Without going in to KV ratings etc. Bullnose props are designed to provide a durable prop for higher KV, lower torque motors like the Mavic (faster prop). At the expense of the highest lift/rotation and turbulence/vortex generating portion of the prop….the outer tip. Vortex turbulence = Noise = Lost Energy and/or people calling the cops on your for flying your drone………
    The new props have a higher pitch near the root of the prop and taper off just like the old ones. The fact that they are sightly more broad is also indicative of a "slower" prop. Meaning that a lower KV motor and ESC combination will yield better efficiency on the new props. It also means the props need to spin slower to create the same amount of lift so they may be a bit more quite than their counterparts.
    Those are not wiglets and DJI is on crack if they think they invented them. They are a new design adapted from what is called a blue tip prop. They are not there for increased lift or efficiency but rather to shape the vortices created by the pressure differences between the bottom and top edges of the tips of the props. Wired magazine had an article about it. https://www.wired.com/2010/02/eurocopter-moves-one-step-closer-to-whisper-mode/

  15. Hello Billy, I posted this on Ricks channel also as were talking props. Being of the old fixed wing pilots I would calculate my prop thrust thus: prop pitch X rpm divided by 1056 gives prop wind thrust in mph. Clever eh. Robert Kelly.
