It will work, but you will have to trim the tricopter to compensate, which means one motor will always run fasteer than the others. Tricopter have very forgiving as far as props go, while on quads you almost HAVE to use specific props.
Hey Len, what I found out is the RD is pretty much for slow fly the prop will bend forward in flight. The DD is a straighter prop, not so much curved as the slow fly and will keep it's shape and get higher speed. EP stands for Electric prop. Hope this helps.
The #'s 1047 a for the length 10" and the pitch 4.7" of thrust or distance, 1105 would be an 11" lenth and 5" of length or distance traveled.
Just to chip in, RD stands for "Reduced Drive" which somewhat described the RPM it withstands. DD is direct drive, for faster spinning, and HD is hyperdrive, for very fast spinning. SF props are "slow fly".
Hi caleb, I've encountered the same problem. I'm using the KK2 board for my Tri and the configuration has the two front motors counter rotating should I juat configure all three to turn CCW with the GWS EP Propeller (RD-1047 254x119mm) (6pcs/set)?
Tricopter don't need counter rotating props of any sorts, that's one of the main advantage of them. As they YAW with the tail servo unlike quads that YAW with the props torque, you don't need different props, and the torque effect they have is minimal.
Thanks for the tips. I have a Park450 1050kv motor which came with a prop-adapter. The adapter fits the 4mm shaft of the motor and is designed for a 6mm prop. How do I buy a prop with a 6mm diameter mount? It isn't a common spec provided on the website. Do most people just drill them out? Is there an adapter that converts from 4mm shaft to 3mm prop? Am I missing something obvious here?
I have been carefully drilling these props out on my drill press. Probably not the best thing to do, but so far it has worked out quite well. I purchased these for my Xcopter and didn't realize when I ordered them the hole was so small. Hope this helps.
Drilling or reaming out a plastic prop seems strange to me. There must be a way to either purchase a prop with the correct dia. mounting hole or a prop adapter to take it from a 4mm motor shaft to a 3mm prop shaft. Or in my case to use the 4mm to 6mm prop adapter that comes with the motor and use a 6mm dia hole prop.
yea hobbyking only does props with holes for small motors so i did the same to fit a larger shaft and i should think aslong as you drill in the centre and dont take too much structural integrity away then it will be fine
I use a small rat tail file, twist it backwards, so as not to 'dig' the file in the prop. Turn counter clockwise with the file and pulling out, turn the prop over and re-peat. I've tried a drill, and usually end up making a tilted hole. With the rat tail file works great. May take a bit longer, but you know it's straight then.
Should be in the same GWS prop section you were looking at. Are you sure there is a GWS 1047 DD prop? I know there is are 10x6 and 10x8 DD's but I have not come across a GWS 1047 DD here or in the other sites I buy props from.
Dude .. these are reverse direction slow fly propellers. Is there even an APC equivalent? If you connect this to your model (after you reverse the motor) which has built in torque correction angles (down / right) your model will fly really crazy and would be a handful to control.
So when I added this to my cart and paid for the order before the 14th of December. When I added this to my cart, the message said it was back ordered and would be in stock in 7 to 30 days. I have waited for, lets say 15 days and I asked hk what the ETA would be on this item. They replied saying it would take up to 45 days. That's longer than I was told when I placed my order AND I have already waited 15 days. Has anyone had an experience like this? What do you guys think? 45 days from now? 7-30 days from now? 30 days from when I ordered? 45 days from when I ordered?
While most of the time they will give you an over estimate, its christmas season and mail is a mess right now, and also the chinese new year is around the corner. Just be patient, it will prop be in stock in a couple weks.
G'day George , these GWS props fit straight on a 3mm threaded shaft and are bolted on , if shaft is plain then any 3mm prop saver will work with an O-ring over the prop . Because putting links here doesnt work copy/paste 3MPRPSVR into the search bar on the left and it will take you to a 10 pack of savers and bands for under 3 bucks ! Best value around !
This looks like CCW. But if you are looking for CW (second direction) of this prop I don't think you will find it here on HC. Try to search for some other pair in same sizes. Just click on big image "Compare" and it will take you to Prop. Finder page.
Hi there, i am also using these for Tri, Quad and Hexacopter. They are great Props to use with the Kinda MOtor you are useing. I however am using the 8xxKV Motor for the AXN Floater that are 7 USD and are doing a great Job with these Props as well. I am using Turnigy Plush 18A ESCs on my TRICOPTER with the above mentioned Motors and these Props. However if you use no CCW Props on a Quad you will loose some Performance as 2 Props are supposed to be regular Props and 2 are CCW CounterClo
GWS does not make a "pusher" prop of this size.
If you want puller and pusher props, consider using the GWS 3 blade props, they come in both versions.
A 3 blade 9 x 5 will replace a 10 x 4.7 two blade www.link
APC has 10x5 SF couples of CW & CCW props. It's perfect for wide range of quad- and above x-copters. I'm using it with four Turnigy 2826SK 1000KV motors. Lots of payload! We all should ask HK to stock these props!
Long before they brake, the'll begin to cavitate. Sound will be different, RPM will go up easily, and push will go down. You'll notice all than if you try it in a static test.
I've tried this propeller up to 7000 RPM, no problems...
You probably already realize they are flexible props, the higher the rpm and the more air they push, you will see them bend slightly forward, they also twist a little, becoming slightly lower pitched, so a little bend is ok, just use your judgement and make sure they don't bend too much.
