Thanks man! Yeah the 4 blade props that KP Aero sell come with a 2 blade, 3 blade and 4 blade hub and 4 blades. You just clip the blades on and away you go. The 6 blade ones are basically 2, 3 blade props with the hubs machined down and the blades trimmed to shape. The stock motor with stock props draw 2.2 Amps static at full throttle, and my 4 blade K props draw 2.6. I've managed to trim the J blades and shape them to achieve 2.6 Amps also, which I reckon is still within what the stock mors are capable of. Especially since the current draw will drop as soon as there is any airflow over the props. I'll post some pictures of my 'J' as soon as it's done. I've just finished building the retractable mainwheel system.
