After I watched videos from YouTube and from the information I read from the Internet that has put a lot of credit and recommendations on carbon made materials, I'm planning to get my MM a set of carbon propellers. Before I made my purchase, Im just want to be made assured that I've made the wise decision which I will not regret.. May I know what's the benefits and advantages for  carbon propellers compared with plastic one?

Hi, Superfly. We appreciate your inquiry but sadly, we don't have any information regarding this, and to have it corrected, the Mavic Mini's propeller is made of glass fiber reinforced nylon.

Apart from posting in the wrong category....be assured that DJI optimized the propellers as far as possible.
So, do not expect a measurable performance advantage.
Carbon props look cooler, though :-)

It's not about the appearance that I seek though.. I mean if carbon propellers could reduced the noise and more durable than the original carbon nylon then why not, right? Moreover the original propeller can be deformed easily.. I'll take a picture of mine and post it below for you to see the deformation of my propeller for no reason.

The comparison between the new propeller which is unattached with the one attached on the arm..

The nylon ones are optimized for less breakage, as they have some flex in them. Carbon props are stiff and therefore will break easier if you manage to fly your drone into something. you can see in this video that the original props saved the day. https://youtu.be/6zHegXvEwdI?t=942
