Who has installed these and aside from looking awesome, are there any other benefits?
From what I understand they work great but there are some down sides to them. The stock props will break and not hurt the motors where as the carbon fiber will not break. Putting your motors or arms in harms way. The risk to me is not worth the advantage of the carbon blades. Your choice.
They are great, but no real difference in flight performance. As you say though, they look fantastic. I wouldn't worry about crashing, as clearly, you won't crash it.
These were discussed in another thread recently and apparently the carbon props shatter on relatively light impact including with leafs/foliage of a tree as they're more brittle than the plastic so I would do a little more research to be certain either way. I'm not sure if either were tested scientifically. I would love to see the tests if someone did ;-)
I use a set of DJI carbon props and rightly or wrong I have more confidence in them over plastic in normal flight and I stay away from trees as matter of course so not putting their brittleness to the test.
Here we go again. Yet another thread on carbon fibre props. Yawn...
I could talk about props all day. My friends have stopped returning my calls.
You'll be aware of the aerodynamic advantages of a single blade then?
Single blades have less vibration also.
