Carbon Fiber 9450 Tri Blade props vs regular 9450 trip blade props. Are tri blade props worth it?
No.
They won't improve anything about your Phantom.
If it was that simple to improve performance, DJI design engineers would have already done something about it.

There's a youtube that shows no improvement with tri blades.

Only thing going for the tri-blades is the "cool" factor, and anyone who knows Phantoms knows that's all there is. That said, a lot of folks go for "cool"!

There is science and engineering involved with prop selection and design.
More blades = less efficiency.

The primary reason for the development of 3 or more blade props is/was to reduce disc diameter.

This is not a more (blades) = better situation.

DJI has matched their props, motors, and ESC f/w for the best performance.
