    newbie question probably, but what would be the advantages of such a setup?
    Also, how do you balance these? they seem to have moving parts, or am i not looking at it right?

    Apparently they alter the whole aerodynamics and stability of the Phantom including increase chance of VRS and more surface area to be affected by winds. I have never heard of any postive reports of them only negative. If DJI thought 3 was better I guess thats what they would have done. I would stay away from them if it was me.

    Newbie not....over 150 flights with P2V, P2V+, FC40, original Phantom and numerous quads micro and slightly larger. The reason I ask is they are "foldable" & CF much like the S900 that I will be picking up on 9/12 from Intelligent UAS in Maryland. 3 blades are reported to give more lift on the QAV250 at the expense of flight time (currently building one)so I'm always looking at new innovation.
