    I would like to make a comment about the Carbon Fiber Propellers...I just purchased a set for my Phantom Vision+ and really thought that I would like them BUT found out really quick that there was way to much torque and had some really bad results the way the aircraft handled. I went back to the factory propellers and everything smoothed back out.....has anyone else had similar results from the carbon blades ??

    I have not used carbon fibre props on my vision plus but have on my FC40.

    I have used the CF props on 3 occasions on the FC40 and two out of the three times a situation very similar to what is described as VRS has occurred but with the original props no such occurrence.

    I also have 3rd party plastic props but will not use them, they perform worse than anything I have encountered.

    Just to clarify things I have replaced the FC40 Phantom 1 shell with a Phantom 2 shell and use phantom 2 props. This configuration gives me more flight time and space inside the shell.
