agreed, definitely too short of a prop for that motor. It would be awesome if they relesaed a version that was a BIT longer. lol
Very interesting to hear your experience so far with switching to a 7mm set up.
As hot as my 8520 15200kv motors get with those props, and as puffy as my lipos get, they arent blazing hot and cool down shortly This set up gives me 3 minutes of flight time at 42g craft weight without lipo. (lipo will puff a bit and be hot, and then unpuff as it cools down, i always let it cool down for 2 hours afterwards to be safe lol)
I tried putting those triblades on the mmw dark 18s, the performance was supreme as usual with those motors but the props were roasting the motors and batteries far too much, and flight times were about 2 minutes. so it was no where near as efficient, and felt like it was doing more damage to my motors and batteries than it was worth.
I decided to stick with 15200kv for 8mm motors and those triblades to give me the max amount of KV without getting TOO hot on motors and batteries. Of course I’m sure lower KV like 14000 or so would be even better as far as temperature efficiencies and flight times go but then the flying experience would probably become more lame.
do you off the top of your head know the KV on the 7mm motors u had tried from kados? that way i can try a lower KV to avoid roasting my batteries and motors, but have a decent starting point for finding that perfect KV for 7mm and those triblade props! I really want to try to give 7mm motors a shot!
would be nice to squeeze 3 minutes out of a 7mm set up with triblades without roasting batteries or motors. but still have acceptable flight performance!
