    Just a heads up about CF props.
    They were used with the Phantoms.. and found because they are so ridgid, puts extra stress on the aircraft.. i would never put CF props on the Inspire... it will effect the longevity.. the plastic props, because of their flexibility absorb stress & shock.. in the longterm... plastic one's are much better for the Inspire...

    I agree. And for the dronie huggers among us.....your fingers.
    After all, Enrique Iglesias would have had two of his fingers flying into the audience if his I1 had CF's.
    Lame, I know. But seriously, CF's are like Japanese ceramic cutting knives.
    And when they come in contact with something else, they cut right trough it, or just shatter into small pieces. A plastic prop gives in and often survives, maybe with just a chip out of the blade, so at least you can land it still safely.

    Well said lake_flyer... i liked the Japanese ceramic cutting knives bit... but your right... they do bring another level of danger to the game...
