cross thread from phantompilots, i like sharing info
There have been a few threads in the past about the Xoar Beechwood Propellers, but i found most of this information to be incomplete and without any sort of conclusion to help someone identify if they actually wanted to purchase these props, and if there were any benefits. So I decided to use some Amazon credit and buy these propellers and share as much information as I could on it with the community. I have logs, weight, pictures and video's to share below. All of this is on a Phantom 3 Pro, the 'B' controller, stock. I'm on 1.8 firmware, iOS 2.8.3 on an iPad Mini 2.

For the record, I have no relationship, affiliation or anything with Xoar or the Amazon seller. I'm some dude who, after a few beers, thought this was a good idea.

Product I Bought: https://www.amazon.com/gp/produc ... 0_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Product Details:

  • 2 x Xoar PJP-N9.5X6-PH3 9560 Beechwood Propellers CW Clockwise
  • 2 x Xoar PJP-N9.5X6-PH3 9560 Beechwood Propellers CWW Counter-Clockwise
  • 4 x Aluminum Nut Caps (2 Sliver, 2 Black)

Amazon experience: 5/5, I ordered June 3, 2016 and it was delivered June 9, 2016. Shipped from Santa Clarita, California to Eugene, Oregon. I paid a total of $46.75 and shipping was free, it did not qualify for Prime. I received no communications from the seller (which was okay), except for the Amazon automated order update emails. Shipped USPS, the box and packaging was really good and secure, the props were very safe.

testing: I did a basic test to pull some logs and record videos. I flew the Xoar props first and about 15 minutes later i did the stock ones. Same conditions, it was about 65° F, cloudy and 8-12mph winds. I used auto take-off to hover, get video /sound around the phantom of the props, then rose the altitude 100% to 400 ft., stopped and then full down altitude down to landing. I got 2 mins in around the neighborhood, but then it started to rain and I haven't taken it out since. I will fly more and share results over the weekend, but wanted to share this so far.

If someone wants to take the data and do cool things with graphs and stuff to compare, that would be sweet. I haven't had time to analyze it. Also happy to share anything else you guys may find of interest.

Initial impression of the Xoar is a very nice product, but its kinda a pain to do nuts and washers when the stock self tightening props are so easy. It seemed smoother, but slower, I'm excited to try it more.
