    Just wondering has anyone in Australia purchased the LP adapters and carbon fiber props from these guys?

    The LP adaptors & CF props are a waste of money,... there has never been a a independent comparison done on these props...., they are outrageously over priced and are unnecessary,
    the DJI props are fine, having flexibility is important for absorbing shock and load... the exaggerated failure of the DJI props has come from LP forum to promote his own product .. i have over 200 hours up using DJI props including QR never had a problem... i would never use LP adaptors or CF props.... but f you do decide you want to try them out, shop around there are other adaptors and CF props available at a fraction of the price... good luck....

    Thanks Steven I appreciate you input and I hear what you're saying. I have looked into this a fair bit and I keep coming back to the thought of plastic locks holding the props on, I think it's just peace of mind knowing that the carbon props will not fly off due to plastic bits breaking. I think I am willing to pay the money for peace of mind...I mean that's a lot of money being held up by plastic

    Fair enough PerthPilot... just look at the alternative to LP products, there are a number of Adaptors and CF props available now...

    For all you guys looking for prop adapters to switch to carbon fiber props. Check out the STO adapters that have a nice video about them on Utube. I just ordered a set from infinity hobby. Com. The 4 adapters shipped $26.00 and they have a USA warehouse. Good luck and God bless

    Just so you are aware, the 'plastic locks' are a secondary measure ensuring the propellers stay attached. Whether you are screwing on props with DJI propellers or LP's adapters, the mechanism is identical, and potential for loss is identical. The prop locks that go with DJI's propellers is a backup safety.

    So you are saying that if I don't engage the quick release locks, the props will stay on?? I really don't understand your reply

    Ignore that post then, I thought you were talking about the spin-on propellers with the separate prop locks.

    I'd buy these a bunch of times just to avoid dealing with LP. He's arrogant and overpriced!! But I'm also perfectly happy flying with the QR DJI ones.
