    Don't waste your money. DJI props always work best for most people. And, they won't void your warranty.

    Why would you expect them to work better?
    DJI designers are pretty smart. They looked at all possibilities and gave the P3 what works best.
    Do you think you will improve that with some random junk you pick up online?
    Being badass black and having 3 blades doesn't mean they will be better at all.
    Some tried those back with the P2 and they didn't do anything better.
    But they are hard to balance and perform less well.

    Now wait just a minute. The regular price is $54. Now it's only $29. You can lose your bird for about half the price. That seems like a great deal.

    lol, why do people try so hard to find props from other manufacturers? I've never been standing there flying my Phantom thinking "Boy, these props suck. I need to find better ones."

    I actually wasn't even looking at props when I saw this, i was browsing daily deals on geek. And I don't have a problem with my props, or think they need to work better, I had just never seen props like this before so I was curious if they were better since they were so expensive.

    Typically, in something like a small Cessna, a three bladed prop will provide a shorter takeoff distance at the expense of lower airspeed. they can also be quieter because they produce the same thrust at lower RPM's. But, in an electric, I don't think you would see a difference,
