    According to actual testing and information directly from DJI, they don't offer any performance gain.

    But they are CF, so people will buy them. They are gluten free and organic as well.

    A lot of opinion on carbon fiber props. Consensus is the do not work quite as well as stock props. They don't flex as much as needed so the performance is a little less. But all of us have opinions. It's just that a lot of us have tried them and end up going back to stock. Some say they cause more vibration too.

    Every time I see that video I go being_sick-3298.gif .
    I did try a set when I first started and seemed to me at that time to make it quicker and more responsive . Course when I landed
    and tipped over one shattered and never tried em again .
    The 9450's came out after that and tried some and have never used anything else .
    Just me :)
