So I assume putting the new low noise props on a standard mavic is the reason that I get Abnormal Gimbal Vibration alerts sometimes now ?

It's compatible but only if you use it for flying and taking a picture, for video recording it's not good enough.

Strange, my 8331 props I have no shakes from. So I've actually ordered an extra set if one should be damaged.

However, it should be said that I do not expect the new props to last as long as the regular because of their thinner spinners. One should definitely keep an eye to they do not get cracks.

Regards Leif.

I'm glad its not only me. I guess they are really designed for the newer motors on the Platinum model.

So could it be fault in the new props in general ?
Be hard to take them back to the retailer now they are used.

Hi sir, the new low noise propellers can be compatible with Mavic Pro if the drone is running the latest firmware. If you have any issues with using the Low Noise props on Mavic Pro, please kindly let me know, a video will be highly appreciated. Thank you.

Just have to properly balance those props!.
Take a toothpick or a sate stick that fits in the center hole of your propeller and put it on the edge of two glasses.
If you spin it slowly it should be in balance in any position.
If one side is always ending down, it means that that side is heavier. With some sandpaper, remove a little bit from the backside until both sides are in balance.
If you have a scale that can measure milligram, weigh each propeller and see if there is any difference. This also will give vibrations?

Thank you so much for your cooperation. And please also add the firmware info of the drone and RC (power on the drone, RC, app and enter device---upper right icon---general----about). Appreciate your work!
