Default Prop upgrade

Hey folks , been a while since I posted last but I was just wondering if anyone has seen a three blade prop set for a Syma X-8-G ?
I bought the three blade kit for my 5 series Syma ( the indoor one ) & I love them !
I've been all over the internet looking for three-blades for my 8 series but have come up short .
Anyone ever seen them ?
Thank you very much in advance , Gene .

basic conversion from 2 blade to 3 blade is drop 1 inch pitch or 1 inch diameter. For the quad I'd drop pitch.

you'll sacrifice top speed.

Max static thrust (lift for staying in the air for the quads) is more related to diameter than blade area.

Basically there won't be a 3 blade prop that will improve performance without changing motors.

If these guys don't have one, then most likely HK will be your last resort...:

Note...... GemFan produces several types and sizes for multi-rotor from nano to 450 size..........however, even they will suggest a 2 blade prop over a 3 blade when it comes to agility and stability for outdoor flight....!
