This will be great match pair for those like to have multi motors scale models and UFO.

Very balance to GWS regular props!

Nice. BUT the norm now is to use motors with collet adaptors which have 5mm shafts! Nobody wants to drill out a prop hub and deal with off center or angled holes and the resulting vibration. But you knew that already... I have given you that feedback three times previously over the years!

When you start making props with shaft adaptors (like the large props you came out with a couple years ago), I'll reconsider using GWS props.

Sorry, this is for those who use GWS slow props be able to a match pair. Since many multiaxis UFO makers stay with this hub. Can't change them.

When other GWS HD props reverse types come, then they will be match the new hub as well.

Your PM box is full

Hi Mr. Lin,

I would like to send you a PM but your mail box is full. Can you clean it up a bit or give me another email address?

Thanks,

Vince

I just bought a quad copter which uses four motors with 3mm shafts. All four motors do NOT have a thread shaft, cannot use your CW-CCW props without drilling, and this is BY FAR the norm today. You are missing a huge market by insisting that motors still use 3mm threaded shafts and therefore can't adapt. My four motors came with collet adaptors for the 3mm motor shaft, and the collets have a 5mm shaft for the props. Therefore, I bought four matched pairs of someone elses nice, inexpensive, and reasonably well balanced CW-CCW rotating props that have the necessary prop inserts for the collet with no drilling required. If you browse the multi-rotor coptor forum here on RCGroups, you will quickly see your premise is slanted to a very tiny seqment of the market, and you are missing a huge market opportunity for props.

No disrespect intended, but there is an old saying... "There are none so blind as those who will not see". The market has changed since I first bought GWS equipment about 9 years ago and learned to fly, but your products have lagged behind the changes. No wonder your sales have diminished... you are not adapting to want people are wanting and using.

Will you be making reverse versions of the EP8040, EP9050, or EP1060?

I'd love to see those options, along with prop inserts on both versions!

Prop inserts

Hi Tom., Thank you very much for your suggestions. Prop insert is a good approach., we certainly will take this into consideration.

Hi Roger,

I hope you can make it happen, because all your competition is doing it. Virtually no one using CW-CCW paired props are using 3mm threaded shaft motors! Mr. Lin just can't come to grips with that. The norm today is brushless outrunners with collet adaptors.

And while at it, your 3 bladed props need some re-tooling. I tried one 8x4HD three bladed prop , and it was so poorly balanced it took Scotch tape on nearly the entire length of two blades to get the prop to balance properly. That has to be an off center hole in the hub adaptor insert to require that much counter weight, I think. Good luck!

Why bother looking when you can get these here in the US WITH prop inserts for a very fair price (and they are stiffer as well).GWS offereing is too little and too late!
