Default New DJI 10x 3.8 props, anyone tried it? Well I have,,,

I just got these last week and was dying to give it a shot. First off, the packaging looked like a cheap chinese toy, like the one you get at down chinatown in Los angeles. Well, anyways, I took it out of the bag and looked at it was was quite impressed with the quality. It has a porous texture instead of smooth like the apc/graoupners brands. One thing that struck me was the 3.8 pitch instead of 5 or 4.7. Well maybe you could use these on both 3s and 4S.. Well i couldnt wait anymore so i tried to install them onto my dji motors.. Belive it or not, they fit really tight. Almost have to press them on!!.. Kinda of good in a way, a little more of a safety feature just incase the tightenting nut ever come loose during flight. I had 9x5 graupners prior to this on my 450 and they fly very similar. DJI had more punch during climouts and was just as quite or quiter than Graupners. quality of the build was very good. Pretty stiff, although not as much as the graoups, but very similar to the rigidity to Gemfans. I think DJI was a little more stiff tho. Anyways, for around $14 for all 4, its not bad. Give it a shot.. Im using this on my 4S and the flight time a gained a little. around 20 secs. Motors/esc was cool to the touch.. hope this helps..

I found a set of 4 CF for $18. Balance from factory was pretty close.

But not bad for price...
