I'm a Newbee and trying to build a Tricopter. I have the Turnigy MultStar outrunner motors and the 10x4.5 props. They came with the prop mount and the cone to tighten the prop on with. The keep unscrewing before I get off the ground. How do I lock then on???
Do not use loctite on these props, they will melt! Ok, I had this problem too at the start, I was not just tightening them strong enough. Just tighten them a max, near the point of breaking the hubs and after hundreds of flights, they are still tight on mine! Again, don't use loctite on plastic!
Watch my Video with cheap unbalanced Props and Motors and Decide for yourself: http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=AHI-lWWhpN8
I recommend balancing them sooner or later but they will work.
Ps: don't mind my poor flying skills. :)
It stand for slow fly and means that this prop can only withstand a certain amount of RPM before it breaks, which is why it is suited for a multicopter because they generally have low Kv motors. Just to be safe i'd stay under a 1200Kv with these props. If you thought this answer was helping please give it best answer award.
