    Hey Clutch33, Welcome to the forum.
    I don't use them, I hear they can slice you open pretty good.
    Lots of folks use them, lots of posts about them already too.

    Enjoy the show.

    their my default prop to go to, very responsive & very good speed with them. Bit noisier than 9450's but worth it

    Yes, Dye your current. And the carbon props are expensive and break easily upon contact with hard surface. You should not ever need them unless you are adding extra payload to your phantom and need the extra thrust. they also make for abrupt camera movements due to their rigid nature. I will stick with the stock unless I add more components.
