Infinity Hobby Folding Prop Blades For The DJI S800 - S1000

For anyone using the DJI style 15" folding props, there is a new affordable option available!

An affordable 15" DJI style folding prop option!

For the many DJI S800 and S1000 owners and the countless others who have adopted the DJI style folding propellers there was only a few options available and most tended to be quite expensive. Infinity hobby has released a new DJI style folding prop that is more efficient and cheaper! They are only $9.99 US for a four pack of CW or CCW blades!

Description: The advanced propeller is designed based on DJI EVO foldable propellers but have a different shape and are proven to be more efficient.

Manufactured by "Made-In-Taiwan" precise molds. Each propeller is made with precise accuracy doesnít need any additional balancing.

These propellers have a conical propeller assembly hole. It is designed to make sure there is a tight connection between the brass bushing and propeller. This in turn decreased the operation vibration of the propeller.

Install direction of brass bush (0 min 26 sec)

Pics and video of the efficiency!

Foldable Prop For Multi-copter (1 min 8 sec)

Also available from Infinity Hobby are the adaptors needed to use folding props on any 12mm 2 hole mount motor. (That will accept a 15" prop load)

Can I use them on my tarot 810? are they plastic?
What are the benefits of using 2prop instead of 3?
And why 24.21 for the adapt or when the tarot adapter cost 14.04(two)

How can these possibly stay balanced after folding and unfolding a few times... I'd like to see someone test that. Also like to see a video of it balanced at every angle, not just horizontal.

Would love folding props but really skeptical.

I can tell you that I have 25 flights on my tri blade folding props doing commercial AV, and they ROCK. They stay balanced after folding, why wouldn't they? There are little teflon bushings to let them turn.

I have full sets of T-motor props that are now collecting dust as these are that good. I only fly the tri-blade as I wanted the extra lift (3 blade 15" props are equivalent to approx a 16.5" 2 blade.)

If the stock motor has a 12mm hole spacing (prop mount holes) the tri-blade adaptors will work.

Hey guys, I have an original S800 from a couple of years back and I still struggle with the original DJI CF 15" props. I rebuilt the arms with the CF sleeve mod but still have issues. I am at a higher elevation of 6,800 ft so I have needed additional lift from day one. I have always had balance issues with these original props, have tried many alternatives but have not found anything that fits the bill.

Does anyone know how well these folding props would work on my original S800 with its 4114-11 KV 320 motors? I am still trying to make use of this S800. At first I thought that the idea of a folding prop seemed very gimmicky but I'm willing to give them a try if I can gain a bit more info, especially from someone who has tried them on an S800.

If you are on that high altitude why not try the three blade version? I have bought 8 set of this for my X8 but not tried it yet.

The three blade might be a good solution as I would imagine that the third blade helps to provide greater lift. With the original props and the 320 KV motors the pitch is only 4.5 if I remember correctly and it seems that these folding props are at a higher pitch. This might be an issue. Also, I see that these are actually 15.6 inches (in 2 blade or 3 blade configuration) which will be too big for my S800 that allows for only 15 inches. If it isn't one thing it's another.

One solution would be to carefully cut thoose extra .6 off or use original 15" DJI foldable in the 3-blade config.
The extra pitch could actually be benefical to you at your altitude.

I thought about cutting the tips off too, and have done that sort of thing before, but then I would be back to a balancing nightmare. Especially with a folding prop. I can't imagine why they chose to make these .6" longer. They lost a big part of their market; guys like me who are still trying to get their old S800 to fly right.

I once bought a set of CF props (maybe from RCTimer ?) that were 15 X 5.5. I thought that this extra pitch would be the ticket for additional lift and it did seem to help initially so I was excited. When I played my video back it was terrible. The vibration was out of control. I changed all sorts of settings in the Assistant software trying to compensate but I never did figure out if this was due to their being terribly out of balance or if the greater pitch was the issue. I agonized over balancing them as I always do with all props but they were still a huge disappointment. This was when I finally set this S800 aside and built my own heavy hauler units. I am trying to revisit this again to see if I can salvage some of my investment in the S800 and the WKM to use as a backup unit.
