Don't use the full carbon props marked and sold for the bebop 1, they do not generate enough lift and will make it fly backwards 1 foot off the ground uncontrolled until it crashes.

I tried twice both small crashes. garbage. Using and staying with stock from now on.

And FFS don't try to stop the drone from crashing with the carbons, the blades won't stop like the Parrots and cut your hand.

I got some of these and they are balanced and work ok . But are noisy/buzzy and dont produce as good results as the genuine props in terms of smooth response

have any pictures how they should look on the drone? Maybe I put mine on wrong way, it just flew backwards 10 inches off the ground and crashed each time.

Extremely dangerous with carbon blades, can injure badly.

I got the chance to test standing a safe distance away.
out of 6 ground takeoffs the first 3 takeoffs went smooth and control was normal. The 4th flipped forward on takeoff, 5th just lifted inches and landed, 6th flipped forward upsidedown and had the motor errors something about velocity. All the last 3 were unable to take off.

so these props are only working 50% for me, 1/2 time won't even takeoff. I suspect they don't generate the lift. I am pressing and holding the takeoff button on sc2. I will try just taping it next takeoff. No hand launches with carbons just too dangerous.
