    I thought about ordering a set of these to try a 3 blade prop. I thought a 3 blade might provide more lift and better handling, etc. what does anyone else think?

    DJI is the leader by a long-shot, in the consumer drone market right now. I think if it provided more lift, or efficiency in any way, DJI would have used em. It's all about maneuverability and flight time. I'm sure they've looked at using these.

    There's an old but great thread around here somewhere about using tri-blades on a P1, but I haven't seen anything about using them on a P2 yet...in fact I didn't even realize graupner had a 9" option for that. I'm tempted to give them a shot just out of personal curiosity. I'm guessing Elginet is right though, it'll be hard to hit the sweet spot like DJI's stock 9443's do.

    Yeah I was tempted to order a set just to try them. I am just curious to see what the difference is.

    Could you please provide a link where I could purchase a set?
    I'd like to experiment with them on my new Vision + :eek: :lol:
