Propellers

Which Propellers do you use?
Today one of my propellers broke in midflight (i have to say: i decreased the Stick to angle value to 8 which makes it fly much more aggressive)
currently i use these propellers

my quad weights 750g

are there any other propellers that are:
-light
-efficient
-maybe flexible
-not too expensive?

  • I also had a EPP prop break in flight today. I did several punchouts with a fast descent and on the third one as I applied power to arrest the descent a prop broke. Fortunately the ArduQuad was only about 2 feet off the ground when it happened, so no damage other than the prop. I'm going to switch to the APC props. Were going to be doing a lot of aerobatics so I need strong props.
  • Some reports that these EPP props break in mid flight with QUADS over 1000gms...

    But the new MATT finished EPP props are much better...
    I have been using them since a long time on my QUAD...
    and my QUAD weighs about 1600gms...

    I like these props coz they are quite flexible and do not break as easy as APC when you hit something..

    But I have felt a loss of pitch in these props as they are too flexible...But in these case APC is the best...
