    Did a search and didn't find anything here.

    Has anyone experimented with 3-bladed props on their FC40? I'm seriously interested in this, but I don't want to do anything stupid or waste my time with something that has been tried exactly as I would.

    I saw a review of 3 types of props, including a 3 blade set. He was only looking at vibration only. Youtube video.

    I think I saw that one Darwin. The German (?) guy started the video sitting in from of a real aircraft right? I remember the vibration details.

    20% less time with them, T-MOTOR same thing less time, fast,,, like the stock ones best for time and no VRS, from day one most I ever got was 7 min. even with 2 2700 mah , bad times and don't like the feel of it , ok for slow flight,
