runing a 4260-500kv 6 cell 3000 40c will this prop bring down the amps and allow 6 min flight with this set up . flighing a extra 300 sp 6 lb . 6 cell ,60 amp ese, not sure on prop sieze prop to marry to plane 13-10 or 14-7 or 14- 6 hope you guys can help
larger diameter props develop more thrust. My only reservation withthese wellbuilt props is som are heavier than others and the majority need balancing before use. the heavier props develop a flywheel effect that can drom top end revs on an engine by up to 1000 rpm ie down from 10000 to 9000/8800 rpm.
Aeroplane still flys and performs well at the lower revs ok on asports model, not a racer.
These are not electric props! Of course you can run anything you want on an electric motor, but I would suggest you check the efficiency of these GLO/gas props compared to APC or other prop designed specifically for electric motors.
I find the condescending arrogance and IGNORANCE of your comment very interesting, ha!
Now there's a really helpful person,
Thankyou so much Spitfire for pointing out my ignorance. you are obviously a well educated and knowledgeable individual, as evidenced by your spelling.
I bow to your superiority.
Viflyer has a more valid opinion Claudio.
They run fine on electic motors. There are lots of advantages to running these propr over an apc prop. The only reason they are better suited to Gas is for weight. The are stronger, the prop hole is close to whats required. If you attempt to open up a 13x6 apc for example to suite a 5mm or 6mm shaft you will most probably ream it off centre ruining the prop. Its a good all rounder IMHO. If you talking about Efficiency than most probably GWS is better than APC in some regards.
Of course you would have to do real world comparisons/tests of the THIS prop with similar size electrics, but in general APC and other electric props are designed to be lighter and more efficient than robust props designed for glo and gas.
I would suggest you run APC or the electric wood props in this size range. In the smaller size planes the GWS HD props have proven to be VERY efficient.
