Hello,
I am a new Inspire 1 owner. The new to me Inspire came with a set of quick release props and a set of self tigtening, screw on props. I personally prefer the screw on type over the quick release and would like to find a carbon fiber blended prop similar to what is available for the Phantoms. After lots of searching I have been unable to find anything. I wish XOAR made this type of prop but their props appear to require 2 screws per prop for installation and removal each time. Just checking to see if i am overlooking good options.
Please advise.
Thanks

I like them but they are not forgiving. At least the plastic ones will bend if they hit something. As far as performance...there is no significant difference.

These are the Xoar props I've got:

Xoar self-tightening props for Inspire 1

They are 'self tightening'. You remove the stock attachments from the motor and replace them with the bottom of a nicely machined socket and attach the top to the props.

They look and sound better, IMHO, but I'm not sure they actually 'perform' any better. Where the stock props are flat plastic with a wide, drooping trailing edge, these Xoar props are more 'wing shaped' and I believe they get their lift from better aerodynamics.

These folding props work just as well, don't need to be removed to fit in a case:
