    Stick with DJI props. They were designed for the Phantom, tested by DJI, and known to work well.

    If you could improve the performance by slapping on some cheap 3-blade props, DJI propulsion engineers would have done it for you.

    I watched several props testing videos on youtube and only difference I noticed is flight time. Battery last longer with stock props on, than double or triple carbon props.

    Some third party props will also cause the Phantom to fly erratically and/or crash. It's not worth the risk after paying that much for a Phantom.

    More blades = less efficiency
