Does DJI sell carbon fiber props for the Phantom 4?

I've looked and searched the dji store and cannot find them.  Can someone point me in the right direction?

Why do you want them?   Are you aware of any particular performance benefit?

They don't make carbon fibre propellers for the P4, I don't think they would provide any benefit over the stock P4 ones.

Don't waste the extra money.  Stock ones are just as good.

I use the Carbon Fiber props from threeking.  Have been for over a year...  A definite although not a huge noise reduction in terms of the "Flapping" sound that the plastic OEM props have.  The sound that was reduced was the "weedeater" noise.      Have never done any real testing for performance however, but kinda feel the a/c is a tad more responsive. Just my opinion.

I am sure they would last longer for the ones using the drone for trimming trees and cutting grass ....

I do believe that like Oldmaniniwva tell above, they could take top of the noise compared to the softer plastic, on the other hand not being able to flex could add to the shell cracking for being to stiff if just slightly uneven/out of balance.

You do not need carbon propellers for the P4. The factory offered are the P4 exactly adjusted and balanced. For other copter manufacturers, there were often problems with cheap propellers made of plastic with imbalances, etc. There it was appropriate to switch to carbon propeller!

As an experienced professional, I can't really recommend carbon fibre propellers. There are tests that demonstrate that those can kill or at least do serious damage, unlike plastic propellers.

Also, not really a single benefit over the plastic ones.

After reading all the replies, I have decided not to persue carbon fiber props for my P4.  However, in response to  "First Officer" Nigel--perhaps I do want to chop my fingers off, what's it to ya?

No, and after reading all the replies, I've decided just to stay with the stock props.

Thanks for your reply.

Thanks for the info.  I've decided not to persue the carbon fiber props and stick with the stocks.

Thanks for replying
