Quadcopter – two- or three-blades is best?

Today, I’m experimenting with changing the stock two-blade rotors on my Syma X5C toy quadcopter with some three-blade options that I picked up from eBay:

I’ve read differing views on which types of blades are best so it will be interesting to see the results when I get the aircraft outside. That won’t be happening properly today, though – it’s far too windy! I’ve tested to make sure it flies still, and it does, but time will tell.

Meanwhile, any drone, quadcopter or just general aircraft enthusiasts out there have any views on which types of blades are better?

    Good to see your post on drones. I saw you changed your blog name last January, but I hadn’t seen any drone-related stuff till now. As the new owner of a not-new drone it’s good to see others dabbling . . .
