I recently bought          8X 9450 Self Locking Enhanced Prop Propeller for DJI Phantom 3 2 Version E300 US
from ebay and they feel like they will break easy, they say "carbon fiber" any feed back about using these?


  • 100% Brand New and High Quality
  • Self-locking tension enhanced propelle for DJI.
  • Self-tightening design avoids prop becoming loose during operation and potentially flying away.
  • The new 9450 provides extra thrust and better power efficiency than the 9443.
  • Higher tension, easy to install.
  • Silver is clockwise and black is counter clockwise.
  • Suitable for all DJI Phantom version( Phantom 1/2/2 Vision+/3/FC40/E300).
  • Size: 24cmX3cm(LXW)
  • Material: Carbon Fiber
  • Color: White
  • Quantity:8 PCS(4PCS CW, 4PCS CCW)
  • Net Weight: 105g



Thanks
Charlie

I have DJI #9450 carbon props for my P3S and really like them. They are stiffer than the standard white blades so should reduce any vibration. Supposedly they help improve picture quality, but I haven't noticed much difference.  They definitely give a "cool" factor over the white blades

Generally if the description says the color is white, but theyre made of carbon fiber, theyre probably not made of carbon fiber. Nonetheless they could still be excellent props

I use 3 blade props on my standard and they are in plastic and work very well

That's not necessarily true. If triple blades were indeed better, surely DJI would have designed them for the awesome popular Phantom series.  ;-)

i do have to say that in my experience, as well as many i've read, there's no compelling reason to stray from stock DJI props.. they actually do not seem to make any difference, or, cause issues, and will void warranty.... unless of course you fly through a flock of birds, in which case CF may save you, not the birds.. but why would anyone do such a thing?

You also need to be very careful to make sure you get props with plastic hubs, not metal ones, otherwise you risk the prop spinning off.  And if they're listing them as compatible with both P3 and 2, it might be a crapshoot as to whether they are plastic or metal (P2 had metal, P3 has plastic for better grip)

Never felt the need to use anything other than factory props. Besides looking cool C.F. has no real performance advantage in this application. Three blade props also will not make the quad faster. Unless you change the pitch of the blade, speed isn't affected. The blades it came with are more than enough for the P3s. I run three blade on my racers and sometimes two depending on course and conditions higher pitch for longer open courses and lower well you get the idea.

A carbon fiber blade will also cut you very deep. So be extremely wary if hand catching your drone...

Anyone know where to get genuine P3 props without incurring ridiculous charges for shipping and cost of props close to what DJI charges?
I'd buy them from DJI but $10 shipping is ridicoulous.
I tried DronePartsPro but ended up with generic ones from them.   Nubs are not color coded and cheaper or at least not the same plastic.

They ship everything via FedEx, that's way the $10. shipment.  It's not so much the shipment cost it's the fact your buying a low cost item, so it seems like a lot. Try Amazon, might find free shipment maybe. Personally I got mine from DJI and just paid the Shipment cost.

If you buy $49 dollars of stuff then free shipping. Else put in your zip to see what shipping is.

I don't know where you are, but WalMart has them in stock.  I'm sure they are DJI brand.

Is the pitch and stiffness of the P3 props the same as the P4P props?

I found BestBuy has them online for $1 per pair than DJI and free shipping to local store.   With tax it cost me an extra $3.   That's worth it.

I received the ones from BestBuy, they are definitely genuine.  They even have the prop hubs covered with shrink wrap.
DronesPartsPro quicky issued me a full refund including shipping after I replied to the shipping notice with a complaint.  They did't even ask me to send back the ones I received.
