I use the Avroto with 12x3.8 and 11x4.7 APC slow flyers. No problems at all. I'd be very nervous about flying with these. Crashes get very expensive very quickly.

and a carbon prop will keep cutting a person long after a slowfly prop has broken away

Re carbon props worth the money ? yes

Are they worth losing your weak point to save motor and frame ? no

In any frame you should always have a crash point , ie a weaker piece of equiptment that will break in a crash in order to save the more expensive parts , ill take breakable props that save motors that cost 10-50 times as much. You can of course use rubber prop savers but ive had props cut through them at high rpm.

I use carbon reinforced props sold in Paul's Flyduino shop:

They are stiff as hell and make a big difference on fast movements and full throttle climbs!

And they are def. worth the money since they come at ~2,10Euro a piece.
