    So with a machine like the inspire and the $$$ we've invested in them.... Has anyone tried any of the cheap blades off of ebay? They're 1/4 the cost with free shipping where DJI charges $10 for shipping and $5 a blade.

    My only concern is quality and whether or not these would hold up? Hoping maybe one of you have taken the plunge and tried them.

    Any advice is appreciated! thanks!

    It's probably the most critical piece of equipment you can buy, and one that doesn't need to be replaced often. Buy originals, from DJI or a reputable dealer.

    Like U said $$$$$$ investment. I will paid a $30 instead of a broken prop at 200 Ft and a lot of $$$$$$ for a repair for a Sh$$&%ty Props, my Father always said, Cheap is to expensive.
    They are so many stories about after market prop on P2 braking falling etc I wont trust them bet they are some good but not will be cheap
    My 2cts

    Amazon, Multicopter, FlyHigh. Plenty of good vendors to choose from.

    Lynh Phan adapters and T motor props are the only aftermarket prop set I will use. There expensive but worth every penny. Stay away from the cheap ebay props

    For what its worth, I have followed the advice of more learned flyers than me and yesterday flew for the first time with the Lynh Phan adapters and T motor props (14 * 4.8). I'm yet to try the 13 by 4.4 I purchased at the same time. I've always believed that "only the best will do", particularly when the props are cheap compared the cost of the Inspire, camera and gimbal.
