Question
How to make a choice between Foxtech Supreme & Lite & MkII Propeller

With the release of Foxtech Supreme lite series prepeller , there are three types of prop available in Foxtech .

I got an email recently before ,inquirying about the differnce between MKII (he just ordered )and Supreme lite .

So I list a table to make the comparison briefly



Conclusions:

1 .Supreme Serise have the best efficiency with the highest expensive. of course if you like the tailor-made protect bag , you still can choose this one .

2. Mk II can meet the daily use requirement with a special offer at this moment .

3. Supreme lite will be your best option if you think Supreme is too expensive and dissatisfy with the performance of MKII .

Did you install them directly to the motor or through propeller adapter?

I have 3 sets of the 1355 lites and they were all fairly well balanced. One needed a light sand on one side. I chose to lightly sand the leading edge and that pulled it into balance. I used a small magnetic balancer and fitted the smallest brass shaft collet. Worked well. I did notice one had a very slight warp, but I think that was just from extended pressure in the packaging. Easy to fix, A minute in hot water and all good.

I gave the quad a really good workout and must say the lites held up really well. I'm more than happy with them.

I wouldn't mind them being unbalanced, if the four Supreme Lite 1055's I bought were unbalanced on the long axis.

But oh no. On mine, the center hole was off-center on the axis perpendicular to the long axis. And there's no way to attach enough weight, to such a small (4.07 mm) moment-arm, to compensate for the error.

I have bought many CF props from foxtech, all have been nice quality but VERY poor efficiency, maybe they would do better with a lighter load.

I want to try the supreme now but am weary to waste more money as I have a box full of CF props that never saw use.

I want to try the 15" or 16" in place of my APC 14" props that are very efficient but bend and shake under heavy load.

Can anyone comment on the efficiency difference between APC (which I run 10" 12" and 14" on all my machines because they are the most efficient) and the Supreme props?

Thanks!

Steve

no response?

How about an efficiency test comparing the 15" supreme to a APC 14"

If you can prove they are the same efficiency I am a buyer....

also I am really waiting for your 5010 motors and 18" supreme props to be in stock.. can you tell us when they may be in stock?

seriously you don't have an APC prop to compare with?

it's a 5$ prop, data needs to be done at the same altitude with the same motor and same test equipment or it's not usefull.

I have received my 5010 motors from you.

I bought 7 of them, one of which has such a bad bearing I will not fly with it, two others have noisy bearings, overall the quality of the motors are good but the bearings are no good.

I would like it if you could supply me with the bearing sizes so I can find some good quality ones to replace them with.
