    I have seen these on eBay for £10 a pair. Just wondering if they will make a difference. They are carbon fibre which to be honest I have heard a lot of issues around the forum. But these do seem quite interesting

    Stick with OEM DJI props. They work very well. It would be a shame to crash your Phantom over a failed experiment.

    I have been flying with carbon fiber blades for several months, never had a problem in any tempature -10 to 95f.

    I've been flying with the original white and official DJI carbon ones AND Chinese carbon ones, all fly perfectly with no issues, the tri bladed ones look cool, they really do but the AC has not been tuned for this prop, loads of threads on the subject, use at your own risk

    I don't think you should try other shape/ design props just based on your feel. DJI props are cheap and last long.

    It's pretty much unanimous that nothing works any better than the original stock white props. Add to that the instances of aftermarket and carbon fiber props shattering, or just coming unscrewed, and I can see no reason to risk it.

    I had some DJI CF props, and they sucked.

    That's the one thing that held me back. The fact it's CF as I have also read about them shattering

    They'll need to be balanced, too.

    edit: Or at least should be balanced. Mine weren't even close.
