    Hello

    I have a Phantom 1

    So I have had much luck and great use of the CF 8045.
    http://www.ebay.com/itm/2-Pair-8045-Car ... 4ae15ce141
    I balanced them and they have been much better than the stock. But they have gotten worn by few bad landings. I need new superior propellers for long flying time and great video footage.
    I also tried 9047 propellers at the same shape of the one I linked to. They seem to be alot worse in stabilizing the quad, which makes sense, because it could lack of torque.

    The new ones that comes with phantom 2 has a different look, they seem longer and thinner at the tip. Would one consider them better than the phantom 1 type of propellers?

    I guess I will buy CF either way, just had luck with it compared to the plastic ones.

    Thansk in advance

    I have only been very happy with my CF propellers that I have used in 1 year, on my FC40. I film for company and need great performance.
    I balance them myself.
    But I guess the never models of DJI propellers are better than the old ones. I still believe CF can be better, but if the difference are so small now, it probably doesnt pay off.

    :D
    I have to agree with Dirk. You should definitely give the 9450 props a spin. :lol:
    Having tried many different propellers myself (including carbon fiber props) these 9450s are significantly lighter than c/f, but stiffer than the stock 9443s. They still require balancing for optimal performance.
