Saw them available for pre-orders on BG

Spotted these new arrivals, but exact availability remains uncertain.

I just installed a new set on my 929...didn't balance them first and that may be the issue but I'm not impressed. They very adversely affected flight characteristics / handling. New unbalanced stock props perform much better imo. As stated didn't balance, maybe that'd make a difference.

Installed the GWS props on my 929 and 949. The difference was night and day.

No more WOD, much more power and very responsive. I can also fly in slight to moderate winds. On the stock props, slight wind = pack up and go home.

I noticed a bit more drift than the stock props but that may be attributed to the much more aggressive blade pitch which magnifies the drift.

I balanced them before installation btw.

Loving the GWS EP5443 props on my v949. The props are closer in weight to the mQX prop. And it flies so much nicer IMHO.



I bought from Banggood for close to $1 a piece. All my quads of this size will use these props now.

Advantage Hobby is suppose to get some in at the end of the month. So US dealer if you don't wanna buy from Banggood.

Thanks RoboHeli. Are you getting some GWS props?

Advantage Hobby list them in white. Hopefully that is true. Cuz I'd like to run white in the rears and color ones in the front. And with white, you can dye to be just about any color.

I plan on getting some GWS props for my V929 and maybe my new mQX. I also want to get an LED kit from http://www.sf-design-solutions.com/ for my quads. Those LEDs look SWEET!

I want to get a mQX FC after seeing that you bought one. I still don't know why none of the clones make their programming more similar to the mQX with the manual flipping.

Those SF-Design LED for the mQX are just LED. I don't think they blink or anything. Easy to do.

I balanced a set of GWS props and on everyone the blade with the numbers on it was the heavy blade.
