Hey all just a quick question. I have noticed that the propellers have different markings in a number of different videos (all official DJI videos). I have attached two that I have found so far. On my drone I have another set of markings so that's three in total. Just wondering if they mean anything different? I'm guessing it' just a design choice.

Some of the propellers have little white circles. You put those on the engines with little white circles because they spin in one direction. The propellers without white circles go on the engines without circles because they spin in the other direction. Make sure you don't put the propellers on the wrong engines.

He's asking about the designs on the blades themselves, not the circle in the center telling you which motor they go on. Look at the pictures, they have completely different designs.

I was going to say the same thing, but I believe he was talking about the stripes on the ends of the props.  They are different in the two pictures, and are different than the ones I have as well.  I think it's nothing more than artist discretion or early batches versus later batches.  The stripe designs don't have any corresponding locations or anything.

It also looks as though the motors are a different colour.

I don't need to read the manual. Maybe read my post again.
It has to do with the White tips on the end of the propellers. Go look at the images i attached.

I am guessing it's just something they changed between pre-production and production, like the sticks on the controller, which were originally removable with a silver stem, and are now non-removable and black.

They are old design and we had changed it.
Please don't worry about that.
