Did anyone tested the performance of these at low altitudes?

more tilted props... you will probably get less flight time and stability, but your drone will be more sensitive

I guess there's not many of us flying really high to provide me with first hand experience ... Whatever, I just realized that this is S mount version of Inspire propellers, therefore replacement of advanced T version locks is required ... Step backward I'm not comfortable with for occasional 3000m altitude fly ... I was hoping to get Inspire motors to rotate slower (less frantic?) and provide more stable hovering and/or slow movements at low altitudes, even at the expense of shortened flying time. Confirmation of such behavior may justify the 1360S props install ...

Just realized the difference between Quick Release S and Quick Release T, just when I received them. If I'm correct we have three types of connectors (only aware of that now!). My Inspire has the T-version, which I prefer to keep. Any insight if there will be 1360T on the market soon, as I'll be flying at high altitudes on a regular base. With regular 1345T flying at 5500 meter above sea-level is a challenge!

No, I think we are stuck with S version for now. BTW the S type prop holders are equally reliable, so if you're set to fly in thin air most of the time  ...

We flew on our last project in Blue River Canada Heli Skiing at 7000 ft up with regular props... No problem... Reason being is the high altitude props didnt arrive in time for the project... I did a test this morning in windy conditions and felt no immediate noticeable difference with high altitude props...

I use the 1360T's quite often, regularly flying at around 5000 meters (approx. 16500 ft.). 1360'are advised above 3000 meters (=1000ft). It does make a difference in uplift (and preventing 'max rotor speed reached etc.). At these heights, the additional power is needed, especially with windy conditions between the mountains ridges.
Yes, batteries certainly drain faster (also because of the cold at those altitudes by the way. A few times I forget to switch back to 1345's when back at sea-level. Very responsive (too much in my opinion) and your flight time will be reduced indeed).
