NORMALY,6" is 15,24 cm but my props are all 15.6cm.At you plane you have to be a little carrefully about alterations.is your motor the right one? if yes,or you have to get the motor mount about 1 cm higher because the fuselage is moving a little at loups,or try another prop in case that has a falt, either try a prop 5x5 if you have, either by cutting the fuselage at the place that prop hits, you have to reinforce the place with some epoxy.hope i help.
Just shave off some foam off the fuselage where the tip of blade touches it. It's much easier than cutting off the tips and rebalancing (not to mention that you should not cut the prop tips as it WILL affect performance)
You are correct!!! I checked with my 7x4 last night!!! SOO SORRY!!! That's what I get for late night reading..lol
Sorry dude I checked with wrong prop as I don't own a 6x4 only a 7x4 for the Bix 2. Sedooo is correct I hope. maybe he's tried it?
i'm going to put this on my Bixler2, my motor can handle it, My question does it really matter which way the motor spins clockwise or anti clockwise, mine goes clockwise but to use this prop i will need to reverse to anticlockwise, some seem to say it goes clockwise, if that is the case then i will need a 6X4E R and sofar i cant find one
hey Crusty ,it dose not matter which way it runs.because you only need to change 2 wires from esc to motor in order to reverse rotation(when doing this side thrust angle if any needs to be taken into account).this one, TGS Sport 6x4E Precision propeller depending what brand you like yes it runs anti clockwise.just a thought =with pusher setups looking from the back when you instore the prop the number on prop 6x4 must be facing the motor . good luck
Not every prop has the numbers printed on the right side.
Dangerdan, you do it like this. The motor always rotates in the same direction, if it's forward or back mounted.
For your setup, the motor need to rotate clock-wise (if you look the Bixler from the back to the front). You mount the prop si that the fatter (leading) edge of the blade goes in that direction.
There is another factor, which is front and back to the prop. generally, the front of the prop must face forward on the aircraft (even on a pusher). Any printing on the prop will almost always face the front. If a prop is put on backwards, it will be less efficient, and may not fly at all. The side with the most curvature is the front of the prop, it is hard to explain, but when you see it, it will make sense.
The side of the propeller blade that has a high point always faces the direction the plane is going, pusher or puller it's the same, you just have to change direction of the motor to suit left or right rotation.
hi,what is reliable brushless motor for this prop.for making hovercraft.i had to producrle a thrust for neat about1.5 kg,so which prop I should use with their respective motor.a hovercraft should cone in 50*50 sq cm...thankyou!
Yes, but it will not fit on the stock prop adapter. You will need to file out a little bit of plastic from the prop so it will fit on. I did it with a rats tail file and it is totally worth the effort.
What way the motor will turn depends on the prop. If the prop is designed to be pusher, the motor will turn one way, if the prop is a normal prop, the motor will have to turn the other way. At the end of the day, it doesn't matter which way the motor turns, as long as it is the right direction so that the prop is pushing air.
Hi..How do we find the non precision side of the propeller. Which side is the non precision side and which side is the precision side. How do we differentiate the precision side and the non precision side by looking at it?
Please let me know which side would be front and which side is back when viewed from the tail end of the Bixler. By the way i was referring to the comment from ADUC.HeliME (159 points) on the precision and non precision side.
"I run this prop on my Bixler with the stock motor. You will need to file out the centre of the prop (non precision side) only slightly because the stock motor is not a standard size. Then use a ring adaptor (included) to make the prop have a snug fit on the precision side. I used a rat tail file I had in the garage. Buy a couple and give it a go! It makes the Bixler fun again after you are comfortable with the stock prop."
When you look at the prop, usually the front side is a bit more rough, and the back side is a bit more shiny. Furthermore, the front side of the prop has the prop size on it. Look at it, and when you find the little "6x4" engraving, this is the front side. If you look at the picture above, this is the front side of the picture - the part of the central hub with the 4 little dots. Usually the back of the prop is the part where you insert the prop adapter.
The side with the "6x4" engraving and the 4 little dots are on the same side in this prop. When i fit this on the shaft of bixler, should I be able to see the 4 little dots when I view them from the tail of the bixler.
When the plane has a tractor (pulling) set up, the prop rotates to the right. When the set up is a pusher and you use the same prop, you use the prop the same way, but you rotate the motor, so it will spin the the wrong way so you have to change the direction of rotation of the motor. Otherwise, you can get a pusher prop, that is meant to rotate to the left, and does not require a reversal of the motor direction.
Hi! wilga needs 8*6 3-blade propeller like this www.link is on BK but you can use this www.link that case you have to replace 2 wires between motor and ESC to contr rotate the motor spinning.
BTW, you can use 9*6 2-blade propeller like www.link
it really depends on the weight of your plane and the flying characteristics... the motor you are looking at should list the amount of thrust you the different sizes will give you. If you are doing basic flights a 1:1 thrust to weight ratio... with that said, watch out for the high torch blades you can invert your bottom winged planes (war birds) pretty easily.
Great upgrade . Draws around 15 to 16 amps under full load with stock bixler motor. Flying time is quite a bit less . Very important to get the hole centered when drilling out for ballance . I have the ac375 spinner ordered so hope there will be no drilling needed again.
The ID id .300 in, 7.6mm. The advantage to rings is they can be used on many aircraft with different size shafts. I save the rings as they can be used as spacers. about .125 in, 3mm deep. Need a reamer to remove the lip.
The AXN uses a 5x5 prop from what I know. You can try and measure the distance from the motor axle to the tail boom, and check if you have at least 3" of clearance to mount the 6" diameter prop. The 6x4 would give you more thrust but less speed, thus, alowing you to fly slower.
I have this prop installed on my AXN. It fits well and works just great. It does make the plane go slower but the AXN is fast enough. I never fly with full throttle. This prop also eliminates the nose dive you get when you hand launch the AXN at full throttle.
Any advice about supply will be unreliable. Stocking estimates are "stock CS policy replies" that are vague, indeterminate and imprecise. Do not pay on back order etc. Wait until resupply then order. If needed urgently, go to another Chinese supplier - there are others if you check the web! I speak from experience - I once ordered and pre-paid an item noted as restocked in three weeks and subsequently waited and emailed and waited and emailed and in the end I cancelled after six months when
Notices about out of stock HK items are highly unreliable. I never do back orders and pay in advance. Once I had to wait for more than six months and HK then admitted that an item I had prepaid and ordered was unlikely to be supplied within the then near future. It had originally been advertised as re-supply in three weeks!
HK needs to give quality information that is utterly reliable. If you need this item urgently, obtain elsewhere. If not urgent, request email on re-stocking and purch
Unfortunatly when I ordered this item either it was marked as available or I didn't noticed it was on back order. Overmore this item was not the most urgent the others are and now I have to wait during an unknown time...
From previous orders and other users it seems as though the max time the HK website displays for items on backorder is 30 days so even if you call and their system says 30 days away, it could be longer than this. I recommend ordering things that are in stock separate to those out of stock so you aren't left waiting! :-)
Unfortunately I rely on the old saying They get here when they arrive. Better than that it's impossible to say. I must admit I wonder why things are out of stock when I see the company who manufactures the item stating they can build 20,000 units a month. Due to the very low markups HobbyKing has on it's stock I'd imagine it*'s more a matter of ordering what they can afford and not what they need. It's the same with you and me and every other hobbyist. We'd like to buy many more planes but we ca

Very good Propeller. It is well balanced. (tested with the new Extreme accuracy Prop/Rotor balancer)
the max. RPM would be interesting! i think its like APC: Maximum RPM=190,000/prop diameter(inches) so i would be: ~31600rpm

I removed an APC 6x4 from my funjet and replaced it with this prop. I gained some speed and a noticable increase in verticle performance. All this and unlike the APC the hole is actually drilled in the middle. Way to go Hobby City

Nice prop! As the other poster said, it was well-balanced. Using it on a Turnigy 2205-1500 with a 3S pack on an 8 oz (230g) airplane - unlimited vertical, and it really tears around the sky.
