Nice review. T-Motor products generally appear to be of good quality.

Thanks!
As I mentioned in the review, I have both and have left the T-Motors on.
They are close but I prefer the T's because of slight increase in efficiency. But the ringer was being able to adjust them on the bird.
I like to open them up before powering up to minimize 'adjustment' once they are spinning, so a nice snug mount is needed. This way I have no wobbles at all when powering up. (I never use auto launch.)

all great information. Thank you for taking the time to perform these tests.
Did you also, or will you in the future take sound pressure readings of each prop and audio recordings from a recorder that does not automatically adjust microphone gain? (not a phone)
were you able to connect in a schottky diode / volt/amp meter into the inspire2 to measure exact efficiency at hover and full throttle?

aloha,
Brian

I have no plans to do any further testing.
The sound level did not seem any different, nor does the maker say they are any quieter.
My primary concern is reliable, vibration free mounting, something that the stock props do not offer.

Very glad for you to share that information. I still 11.5 months of Care/Refresh and 3 sets of DJI props. Would hate to void replacement if needed.

Thanks for sharing this information again on the DJI forum.  I hope that DJI can see we have interest in having the CF folding prop for the Inspire 1 / 2 series of drones!

Great as always

I just bought the T-Motor props and took a quick flight, they seem to respond better. Still quite noisy on the Inspire 2, thought the prop design may reduce the noise a bit. Will test this weekend
Thanks for the info Aeromirage, I do like the T-Motor props

Glad you like them!

I didn't notice any reduction in noise either.
But then, they don't claim any reduction.

How difficult was the installation? What tools did you require?

The overall installation was quite simple, a bit of a challenge getting a couple of screws off. I had purchased a iFixit kit that has the unique Torx screw drivers to unscrew and screw. I also had bought the blue #242 liquid screw lock

Take your time, think all was done in about an hour. I waited for the liquid lock to dry before taking a flight, still quite noisy.

I have been flying with the Koptermax folding propellers for 5 months - very pleased with them. BUT think the shaking on startup is disturbing and for now I have the Xoar propellers with adapters - very nice - more quiet and no shaking on startup. ( I am used to folding propellers from my M600 ) No problem with installation.
