So I have been reaching prop designs/builds (bi & tri) props for my MP1 and I have mixed thoughts. I run at times my battery mod on my MP1 (2x3000) side mounted for better COG, I really don't care for top mount, plus I font want any sensors block.

So I get these two videos sent to my were this guy builds "Quad" props from OEM Mavic props.



And his test


Then someone sends me these "tri" carbon fiber props off eBay.


Now I use MAS props and can swear by them but if "tri" props or for that matter "Quad" props are better wouldn't you think OEM would make them?

I'm just looking for more lift/thrust power.

What's your guys take?

Why more Lift/Thrust ?? just means more power used...

increase my "payload" & ext battery mod balances out power used. By keeping my COG low with payload aerodynamics or agility is not sacraficed. Thus then increased payload needs lift/thrust which comes from props. If one can balance or for that manner control throttle from the sticks engine overload/overheating is minimal. Then a better transfer of power to either bigger props or more props then equates to more lift/thrust with less energy used.

it seems to increase thrust but i would worry about the props coming apart from the glued joint

Not being scientific would the motors be working harder with the extra load in this configuration ????

I would like to focus on my orginal question please about the "tri" props. The "quard props" mod I was just showing everyone what someone has done
Are the "tri" props worth buying and does anyone have experience with them?
