    Hello all!
    New to the Phantom and this forum, been involved with RC craft for over 30+years and have some questions.
    I have a stock Phantom 2, bare bones. All I can find locally are P3 props, I understand that the new props are plastic hubs vs. the P2 metal hubs. Looking online I can't really find any info on whether I can use the P3 props on my P2...
    So I am asking here, Can I use P3 props on a P2???

    Thanks in advance!

    While they would fit, but the plastic hubs are not as durable. Your best bet is to use the OEM props. I would only use the metal hubs for your P2. You can get the improved DJI 9450 version. They are inexpensive and last a long time if they don't get damaged. You can get them directly from DJI or places like Amazon or even your local hobby shop.

    Here are a couple links...
