New DJI Mavic Pro Platinum Low-Noise Propellers
New DJI Mavic Pro Platinum Low-Noise Propellers are out. Released early September at the IFA2017 event in Berlin, it has taken awhile for DJI to make them available.
The 8331 propellers have a brand new aerodynamic design giving the Mavic Pro series an impressive noise control performance. The Mavic Pro Platinum, up to 4dB (60%) of aircraft noise is lowered during takeoff and landing, flight time is extended to 30 minutes. Noise reduction and flight time are also enhanced when used with the Mavic Pro, but not as much.
They fit the DJI Mavic Pro Drone?
Yes, the new low-noise propellers fit the DJI Mavic pro drone. the new prop design adds to the aesthetics of the versatile DJI Mavic pro drone, but that’s really where the good news stops.
They look is great when the Mavicpro is opened up. I found when closed, the new low-noise propellers didn’t sit well, kept popping out like an excited puppy at play-time. This caused the props snagged when using the DJI Fluffy drone bag.

Are they Quieter on the DJI Mavic Pro Drone?
The big question being asked by DJI Mavic Pro owners around the globe, are they quieter? As DJI state themselves, there is a slight reduction, but its not going to blow you away.
I found that there was noticeable difference when the motors where idling on the ground before take-off compared to the standard propellers. Once in the air though, I couldn’t hear any reduction at all. Maybe it was an age thing?
Undoubtedly to see the noise reduction claimed you need to be investing you hard earned money in the latest DJI Mavic Pro Platinum. The updated motor control unit in conjunction with the redesigned low-noise props is where the magic happens.
