    None of the above, but they are more brittle and dangerous, I think....

    Don't do it, there are no props better than stock props plus the have metal hubs where the new p3 props have plastic hubs because of the new active braking. There is no point in using them at all. People just because they are carbon fibre they must be better or that they look cool but you can't even see them while spinning and are way more expensive than the better stock props never mind being much more dangerous

    The history of carbon props with phantoms isn't very positive... the Phantom firmware is tuned to the props included at purchase... quieter is possible... more power is unlikely... undesirable side effects are always a problem.

    Ok, thanks for the advice. Will spend my money on something else than carbon prop.
