    I'm testing one similar, they fly really well on both the vision and the phantom.

    Would be interesting to A/B these against the Vision props to see which produces less jello. As CF props these are obviously very brittle and stiff, and if you've seen the Vision props they are even thinner and more flexible than the old stock Phantom props. I've never been totally convinced that stiffer props are better at reducing jello since it's really more of a resonance frequency thing than how stiff or flexible the props are.

    Anybody here who tried ?

    I'm not much happy about performance. They looks way off the balance.

    I can't compare to the the real dji props, but my experience with the knock-off 9" are as with most my other cf props: they're lighter, noisier and need more precise balancing than plastic. But once balanced they perform quite well. I stay with mine for the tiny bit of extra flight time over 8". If I had a p2\p2v that was not heavily overweighted I'd stay with the stock props.
