Does anyone have experience with carbon props from DJI, do they have advantage over the original props?

The carbon  ( carbon fibre infused composite not 100% carbon fibre ) are stiffer and IMO make the P3 more responsive. I think at higher altitude flying they will be slightly more efficient and give a tiny bit more flight time..

I would not say they are BETTER than the standard ones, maybe a little more refined..
The white tip ones lok cool I think..

Here are a couple of videos that I made with my first impressions of them. I wouldn't say they are better than the stock ones but they are lighter, more rigid, and better looking. Well I  guess maybe I am saying they are better! They do make the phantom a little more responsive. My favorite thing about them is they make it way more stable when descending straight down at quick speeds.

One thing to watch out for though is the carbon reinforced ones don't bend as much as the non-carbon ones when they hit something.

So they can potentially cause more damage in a mishap, especially if you hit a person.

I definitely wouldn't use them indoors.

I put Carbon Blades on my Blade 350QX3 and it definitely made it handle better, but they are more rigid and break easier.  I've broken two of them just from the wind tipping it over during landing...

PS - The Blade 350QX3 handles terribly in wind...anything over 10 mph and you are pushing your luck   My P3P is much more stable in the wind!!
