Parrot AR Drone Propeller Combo (AD09 & AD09R ) (6pairs/bag)Suitable for 2mm shaft
After 7 months waiting I have never received this item, I have asked to be refund and I am waiting since more than one month now and no money back, very bad customer service!!Pro:
- not expensive
- do the job fine
- need to be straitened & balanced first!
- very stiff material witch tends to explode on impact to easily
- imprecise shaft holes, most are to tight
The quality is good, good packing and best price. Overall is best buy, recommend it...
Good to keep extra of these. You never know when you might need them.Mucho ms baratas que las originalesNeeds slight modification for a perfect replacement propeller.
Pros- Cheap, Lighter, Slightly better looking design, Labelled for direction placement.
Cons- Parts of the blades need filing and sanding, the centre shaft needs to be drilled out very slightly for better fitment, not all are balanced
In summary, you get what you pay for. Good for enthusiasts that know what needs to be done.Bargain pricing though an unfinished product.
As other reviewers have mentioned, the blades require some filing and sanding to remove excess plastic from the moulding or extrusion process.
Also centre shafts are a slightly smaller bore compared to OEM propellers causing a tighter fit and putting unecessary drain on the motors/battery. Good for the experienced flyer that knows how to modify/correct to suit. Great as spares!Stronger than the stock prop, a must have, there is a definete jump in performance of my Parrot ARDroneThese props, while representing a significant savings on original Parrot props, are not as resilient.
I would only recommend these to accomplished flyers as they do not survive being knocked around at all. I have just completed my MuriMod and decided to swapout the originals for these. As part of the mod I have had to fly naked as it were. I should not have bothered with these props. While making adjustments and practising using the mod i managed to completely shatter 2 sets of these blades with knocks to trees and coffee tables that the original props would have shrugged off without shattering into little pieces.
Again, great price, but for experienced, non crashing pilots only!
Also these are a tight fit on to the shafts compared to original blades which just slide on and off with no force. These props need a firm press or pull to install or remove.OK... quick recommendation for this blades? AVOID LIKE THE PLAGUE!
3 packs arrived, 3 pairs in each (bought a 'couple' shall we say, as spares lol!!)
Opened one of the packs and removed 2 left hand and 2 right hand blades to fit. First impression was that they do appear marginally stiffer than the original blades. All four blades I removed had flashing on the tail edge (thin slivers of plastic that should've been removed post-injection moulding at the manufacturer) and the centre hole to fit the blade to the shafts were slightly undersize.
The upshot of this was they were quite difficult to get onto the shafts, needing a bit of effort to push them on (they should in reality just drop on). Re-fitted the e-clips, took the drone out my back garden to give them a whirl.
Set the radio on 2 (full tilt!) and up she went...quite a hairy launch, wobbling a bit, though quickly settled out. Flight didn't seem any more responsive than the originals to be honest.
Next thing I know, there's quite a noise coming from one of the blades and since I'm now flying outside in the dark but under a 500W halogen security light, I can clearly see one of the blades resonating. These blades aren't balanced! Next thing I know, the drone flips over (cuts out as expected) and falls to the ground maybe around 50cms, onto grass.
BOOM, two props shatter to pieces! on GRASS!
