AVOID at all cost!
on May 27, 2014
I can't stress this enough.
I am a professional drone photographer, and like many of you I am always seeking for ways to make my drone fly longer and be more stable in unpredictable winds. I bought these blades hoping they would help me in both departments, and even though I've read some bad reviews, I figured people just didn't know how to balance these and thats why they're having problems. I have a custom balancing system so I should be OK, right? WRONG!
I was flying out in Ocotillo Wells this weekend, when all of a sudden the drone started losing control (at about 100' up) and heading straight down towards some boulders. I was able to slide the ailing drone to a slightly softer sand area as it was tumbling down, and luckily crashed it upside down, so the 3+ black and the Zenmuse were unharmed. Upon inspecting the props, I came to find that one prop was simply coming apart at the seams next to the shaft. How lucky I am that this disaster only cost me $25 worth of props and not my GoPro, my Gimbal or even worst! I cleaned up the sand from the motors, threw on my trusty OEM props and continued filming all day. You may NOT be so lucky. These are made very poorly with lots of weak spots. PLEASE, for your sake and for the safety of those watching you fly, DO NOT use these props. I am attaching a picture of the splitting prop, and I may also upload the video of the crash when I get to it. I am also going to re-post this review on each seller who is offering this product, because never mind the fact I will be saving countless drones....I may also be saving someones face or hand or life by urging you avoid this horrid excuse for propellers.
