Its not worth mounting the 6-blade rotor or the JPower 5-blade rotor on them, and it probably impossible because of the M5 thread.
The Lander rotor (in my test at least) produced higher thrust for less amps than the 6-blade rotor with exact same airframe, motor, housing, esc and battery (I literally pulled off the 6-blade and put on the Lander 5-blade). When you see the two rotors side by side its clear why Lander is better, it copies Wemo type blade design with reducing pitch towards the edge (like a prop), where as 6-blade rotor is constant pitch.
You can get the Lander rotors by themselves for less than $2 from HK, but unfortunately HK dont sell the adaptor.
great info, thanks .
and ya , now i remember , u are correct , it was just the adapter that was missing .
