    I know there are two different DJI props for the P2, the older ones and the newer ones with the different pitch. Are they able to mixed and matched? Will the Flight Controller balance them together? If so I am assuming they will be spinning at different RPMs. Will this make "the jello effect" rear its ugly head?

    I don't have any of the newer ones but I was just wondering because if I order some props and I get sent the newer ones instead and replace them one at a time I was wondering how it would affect the flight characteristics. I know it probably isn't the best thing to do but I'm wondering if the P2 is smart enough to figure it all out.

    No -- don't mix and match them.

    That would be like driving with your car's left side in 5th gear and the right side in 4th.
    How do you think that would go?
