    Different manufacturing process.
    Strength is immaterial, since if you crash CF tubes will break no matter if they are woven or rolled.
    DJI only changed the pattern due to cost.

    Aesthetics are of course a matter of opinion.

    Depending on the force of the hit. light hit, woven might fair better.

    I have 2 sets of arms.. So strength wise there probably the same.. Which pattern do you guys think looks better, I know it's personal preference but I will make me feel better about my desicion.
    Thanks

    I can't say for sure which is stronger because I haven't broken any.
    But, I think the weave looks way better.
    Another interesting thing I have noticed is that I have seen dozens of pictures of Inspires with broken arms, mainly on ebay, and EVERY one has been the camo type.
    Hmmmm........
    Here's my bird.....

    I agree with you, I've only seen the camo carbon fibre broken, never the weave.. I think i'm goin to stick with the weave.

    At 200ft I don't think you tell the difference anyway. Unless your just going to look at it sitting on the ground,
    just saying.

    I agree with you, but it's no different than putting nice rims on your car, ur in it driving so you won't see it

    I have yet to see or hear of a broken woven arm........not saying it isn't possible. Just haven't seen it yet.
