Do you mean DJI carbon reinforced props? No real benefit.

If you mean some other brand...wasn't it mentioned earlier to stick with DJI branded props?

The first question you need to ask is whether any "carbon" prop you might be considering using is true CF and not simply FAUX (pretend look like). If its just a fashion accessory forget it. There are no performance gains to be realised- only the likelihood of increased risk of failure.

It was just a curiously question.
Yea, you're not the first.

Just know other than some antenna mods, there are no 3rd party 'bolt-on' 'hop-up' parts for these aircraft.
They use a closed-loop control system where all flight performance is controlled by the firmware.

You can make some adjustments in the app. such as stick response, etc. to suit your photo needs but nothing will make it fly 'better' (faster, etc.)

Another point worth considering is that carbon fibre is very strong, clipping yourself with DJI blades would hurt like hell and do some damage, carbon fibre would slice you like a knife, quite possibly removing fingers
I use true carbon fiber props and have had NO issues ... they are slightly less weight than the stock ones and yes they are stronger but they do make a bit more noise and are more rigid so a little less forgiving on absorbing very slight aircraft movements during a windy day ... this is not an issue because the gimble still removes any additional movement not absorbed by the more rigid props.
