Thanks, i do most of my flying at about 5300ft wondering if it would be a good idea...As I understand it, they have more pitch to create more airflow in thinner atmosphere.
So, if that is true, they would create more resistance in lower atmospheres and thus use more power.
Probably reducing flight time.
I have never used them but have read about them on the DJI forum.
thanks for the detail, ill pick up a couple pairs!Using high altitude props at 5,000ft will give you the same performance characteristics of regular (sea level) props at, say, 200ft.
They create more resistance but that means a reduction in motor speed. For each 1,000ft above sea level I think (remembering from a hungover lecture about 8 years ago) you lose around 2-3% in performance/thrust for a given RPM and prop. So you're operating at around 85-90% compared to if you flew at sea level.
That being the case you should see a slight increase in flight times though I imagine it will be very small.
Definitely worth getting a set.
