Hello fellow DJI Pilots. Does anyone know whether CF propellers are better than the standard propellers? Is there any difference?

The main difference is that you'll most likely void your warranty if you crash your Phantom while using 3rd party CF props. DJI props work very well and are inexpensive, so there is really no good reason to venture elsewhere.

Thank you both for your responses. I have no desire to void my warranty. I purchased my P4 3 weeks ago. I love it. I've purchased things here and there to upgrade my P4 including CF propellers.

More than voiding a warranty, why do you want to take a risk as you do not know the aerodynamic characteristics of the new third party CF props?

DJI sells carbon reinforced props for the P3. Yes I know this is a P4 but the props are pretty much the same aside from the quick disconnect.

Those cannot be used on the P4, so they are not really useful in this case.
