Rise Above is the exclusive Australian dealer for the famous Lynh Phan Aluminum Adapters and Carbon Fiber Props
Set of 4 Lynh Phan Aluminum Adapters and 14" Carbon Fiber Propellers. Aluminum adapters fit DJI Inspire 1, Inspire 1 V2, Inspire 1 Pro/RAW, and DJI Matrice 100. Allows for the safe use of carbon fiber propellers.
The question keeps coming up: what's so special about LP adapters? Lynh's adapters account for harmonic resonance inherent with CF props, which, at certain RPM can produce prop oscillations.
Those oscillations can shake the motors and craft with vibrations that create rolling shutter artifacts ("jello") in video and wear and tear on the aircraft that can result in structural cracks in the motor mounts and shortened motor life.
It's a really key point and if you want to know how they accomplish this, well, that's the secret sauce.
By the way, if this sounds strange or you've never heard of CF prop resonant harmonic oscillations, the DJI support folks themselves warn against CF props on the Inspire since you'll get jello in video (due to harmonic resonance oscillations).
And that is true - if you just mount the CF props directly on the motor bell or use an adapter that doesn't account for it.
And to the question: why are they so expensive?
They are expensive because it took 8 months of R&D and many iterations to figure out a solution to safely mount CF props on the Inspire. Anyone can mill a chunk of aluminum. Knowing how to kill the main problem with CF props in the process is what people are paying for.
That and the quality of the product (Jon Barmby test flew EVERY set of adapters himself before shipping for the first 6 months they were making them).
