    I noticed this when I began looking into the QX95S. Why the two different props?

    Are they both exactly the same length/height? Maybe swapping a pair diagonally will offer some clues.

    my guess would be weight distribution . Props on the front look like they may give a little more thrust. Maybe its so all motors spin the same but the front has a little more lift to make up for the front being heavier?

    Hmm, fronts are Bullnose. Chinese install technician error perhaps?

    The S version is a little smaller (90mm vs 95mm for the original) so they had to go with the bullnose on the front as they're a little shorter and the rounded ones wouldn't fit.

    Hmm, interesting. So there would be a need for two different sets of props in bulk.

    Yes there would. Unless the standard props are significantly cheaper, you could buy them in bulk and just trim the ends a bit and use them for the front. Or you could also just run the bullnose props front and back. Don't know why it doesn't come like this in the first place

    I can get the standard for $.90 for a set of 6.

    I've been tossing around either that airframe or this one.
