3 bladed prop for quadcopter

Hi ppl
I was wondering about this props :


They have them as CW and CCW , are there any advantages/disadvantages to using this kindof props in a Quadcopter ?

Ivied reed in some forms that they are not so noisy and better for takeoffs ( i supposethey war talking about planes ).

  • WOOW 50€/2 props , thats europien expensive :))
    I was thinking more the lines of asian expensive 20-30$/2 props.

    When you crash your quad with thows props i think its similar to a "hit to the family jules:) "

    To bad they donth have 14" or 15" props. they stopt at 12" .

    2 blade is always better than 3 blade, 3 blade allows you to have smaller props as in overall diameter. 3 blade props are also harder to transport and efficiency is less than 2 blade due all blades are affected from turbulence more than in 2 blades. Ok they usually are better balanced than 2 blades.

    I have some GWS HD-9050 3 blades that I used to use on my quads. Anyways they work rather ok. I could make someday few tests to see how they compare to 2 blades with overall thrust.
