Are the tips make of the same material as the blades? I got the ebay none DJI platinum props, and the sound generated is "softer" then the stock DJI pro.I found no difference in performance with the knock-off low-noise props I got on eBay. I then purchased the DJI factory low noise props and noticed a decrease in noise. I also set a personal record flight time and distance the first time I flew them in Sport Mode.
The DJI props have a flexible tip. The knock-off brand did not.
I agree 100% and I have since gone back to the original props. No one seems to talk about the wind issue and I'm glad you brought it up. I also get a gimble vibration often with the low noise props. I will take a bit more noise for the better performance any day!I have been flying the Platinum Pro props on my Mavic Pro for about 3 months. I would confirm what DJI promises with slightly reduced noise levels and slightly longer flight time, however they perform significantly worse if there is wind above 10 mph. I could fly fairly confidently in winds up to 20-30 mph with the original props in regular flight mode, and in 30-40 mph winds in sport mode. With the Platinun pro props I am struggling to move upwind when winds are above 20 mph.
Many people would think it crazy to fly in this type of windy conditions, although I would argue the Mavic can handle it if you leave yourself plenty of room to land, practice a lot, and keep your distance from immovable objects and there are a lot of cool places in the world where you regularly get winds like this (e.g., most coastal environments).
Safe flying everyone.
I just got mine in today i cant believe hiw much quiter they are. I was truly surprised at the amount of difference YouTube doesn't do it justiceLooks like quieter and longer... but not by much. I wonder how much "real world" difference these will make in both noise and flight time.
