What motor would be sufficient?
Want to use it in my re-configured CL-415 with water drop system.
Originally i had GF 2210/30 motor with GWS HD8040 3-blades, but now i need approx. 400-500grams more thrust. (The old config worked as well with the tank - but "in thrust we trust"...)
Nice props! Lightweight, easyly ballanced, great price. Bear in mind that they are right turning props when you are looking from behind. They are never on stock... I have ordered some of them last year and they are still on backorder...
Notice says 30-45 days. Props are a commodity item that can be bought from Local Hobby Stores (LHS). The prices are higher but you get it when you need it. Set up a "Stock Arrival Alert" if you have not done so yet and receive an email notice when stocks arrive or include it in your wish list and be notified as well via email.
HefnySco, Not sure when they will be back in stock. If you can wait on them, the best thing to do is go ahead and order them now. Then, when they do arrive, you will be one of the few that get them. Hope this helps and Happy flying!
Wow! Were they on the same order? Or did you request to send items that were in stock? Great props! I was using the 8x4x3s on my quad because these made it just a little unstable. I skipped this prop to make a larger quad which uses the 10x6x3s. Hope they come in for you soon! If not, you might look at allercdotcom because they usually have them. Better check fast because this post may soon be deleted by the discussion police. Ha ha! Hope this helps and happy flying!
No. When compared to 2-blade props, they inherently use MORE torque at the same thrust (and lower RPM), but the inertia of the propeller is smaller for the same thrust so that they can be accelerated/decelerated faster - that's the benefit for multirotors.
Each propeller comes with 2 inserts. Do I have to use both inserts?
The shaft of my motor is 3mm and the shaft of the prop balancer is also 3mm which means that the cones are kind of useless. Is this a problem?
Has anyone used these props on a Xcopter or any multirotor? I've heard that 3 blade props are more stable for some reason. I plan to replace my slow fly two blade 8 x 3/8 with these props. This is what I will be putting it on.
3 blade props also have more surface area to generate lift, so if 8x3.8 props were not too small for your setup, don't go up in diameter. HD8040 3 blade already has a bit more pitch and also is heavier than your current props. Unless you have motors & controller, that can take even more pitch and slower RPM changes you are makeing things worse for yourself. Try HD8040 first & always balance all your props for quads! 3 blades vs 2 did feel more stable for me, but quick ability to change RPMs is v
Hakk, my setup will support 10 inch props but they were not as stable and the 8 inch props didn't seem to have enough lift for my purposes. My main question was reference to stability. If the 9 inch are stable, I would prefer to use them. I suppose I will order both.. ha ha.
Sorry, no videos, but here is a picture of one of them with GWS HD8040 3 bladed props on. Worked much smoother for me than 2 bladed GWS props. This is before adding FPV camera. I fly with Scherrrer UHF gear.
Hakk .. you quad looks nice and those nylon threaded poles are interesting - I do not know if they have them at our local hardware. If you face the ESC heatsink against the alum boom, your ESC will like that and run cooler but you would need to fasten it securely from the body as opposed to the wires.
Hi... I'm using exactly this setup for Twinstar. With 3S 5000mAh it can fly about 25 minutes on half throttle. Just look on my setup on this url (just remove spaces) rcal***. com/ index.php? action=dtl & amode= & id=3587 Twin can start exactly from your hand without throwing.
Bought 4 sets for my quodcopter and giving more thrust compare to two blade propellers.
Heavy and very light in weight.
Good quality at very low price.
Going to buy 4 more sets of counter anti counter propeller set.
Rule of thumb for three bladed props: Take an inch from the diameter, add an inch to pitch. So they should behave like a 10x4HD.
Lighter and less stiff than TGY, will tolerate hard landings but lose some efficiency at high power.

A good prop. At engine TGY AerodriveXp SK Series 28-26 1350Kv battery 3S1000 mAh 12-20C power of 180 W, 4S800 20-30C mAh battery power 300 watts. Attention prop is not balanced, decently stochil 2 blades. The result is good, no vibrations on the entire range of revolutions.

Very well ballanced prop. Have more thrust than twin blades at same Amps. Excellent product
Ich benutze diese Probs auf einem Selbstbau-Quadrocopter zusammen mit den emax2822 motoren. Bei 750gr Startgewicht perfekt. Gnstiger kommt man wohl nicht an Probs fr nen Quadro, da man ja links und rechts drehende braucht.
