    Has anyone tried these before. If so, how well did they work?

    I bought 2 pair yesterday at Best Buy and they caused so much vibration that I got the DJI vibration alert.

    Planning in returning them this afternoon.

    (Yes, I checked to make sure they were installed properly)

    Thanks!

    Using 3rd party props is generally a very bad idea and largely pointless, not recommended. There have been many stories of attempts ending in tears.

    There is zero point in using them, other than bragging rights. They're heavier than stock, almost all of them have an inferior design with a screw that is a major point of failure, you have no idea about the QC for balancing them, and the limitation of the aircraft is electronic (you can triple the ascent rate and get almost 150% of the stock speed with stock propellers if you change the parameters alone), so the additional rigidity or changes in angle of attack are going to make no significant changes to performance.
