Sure, here's some.

The stock props will carry an 808 #3 cam without issues, but tend to be boggy / wobbly carrying the extra three grams on the 808 #16 (HD). The GWS rotors provide increased lift, thereby providing a more stable platform carrying an 808 #16 camera. This video was taken onboard an MQX with the new GWS rotors and carrying an 808 #16 cam.

Note that every one of these new rotors I've received has been seriously unbalanced, providing nasty vibes ootb. The good news is that the blades are easy to re-balance using scotch tape.

I've selected this clip to show both good stable control at altitude, and also to show maximum instability while in controlled flight (discussed earlier in this thread), namely, straight descent on low throttle -- you'll see this here from the 28 second point.

Rotor Mod MQX (0 min 50 sec)
