Hi Victapilot,

Agreed, and most of 28mm outrunner motors can be mounted well on the said mounts.

Hi Chen,

Will there be EPO versions of the C47, Cargotrans, and GWS-38?

Thanks.

Hi 0leur,

Yes, these three great airplanes will be EPO versions soon. But I have no idea about their priorities.

A GWS freind, Mr. Fran Oakey applied GWS PG-03 Gyros on his tricopter and quadcopter.
Many thanks for his efforts and pictures.

wrong ends on cable

after waiting 3 weeks I finally got my "GWESC480A" from caliberhobby ....I live in Mexico and there are no hobby shops in my area....my problem is that the wire plugs for the battery and motor are all wrong ...although I specified the ends I wanted the unit does not have the correct ones and they never mentioned this nor did they include them ....the postage to Mexico was almost the same as my order !.....I would like to do all my future ordering through you , but fear that the postage to Mexico would be prohibitive ....I'm sure the plugs and the included wires would fit in an envelope ....what would be the postage ?
my e-mail is gravyinmex@gmail.com .....thanking you in advance

Hi Gravy,

I'm afraid that most of the GW/ICS480Li (GWESC480A) comes with the same plugs, not the custom made ones. I'll send you e-mail for this matter.

I wish GWS make CCW and CW two-blader propeller pairs for multicopters. Those APC props are so expensive and we brake quite a lot of them.

Hi Vinlee,

There have been GWS 3-blade CW and CCW propellers available. Currently, the only 2-blade counter rotating one is H2090 20x9 made for helicopter main blades. "GWHPS004" Grey main blades, and "GWHPS005" Black and harder main blades.

If you would have to apply the smaller ones, suggest you using those 3-blade propellers.

Thanks Chen,

Actually I have tried GWS tri-blade HD8040 since they were only CW props available from HobbyKing, they are hard to balance and less efficient than 2-blade props.

Currently I use GWS RD-1047 for my tri and quad. Since I use all CCW props on my quad, I need to tilt front and rear motors to counter CW torque. It is a bit inconvenient and less downward thrust. I just ordered APC 1047 SF CW CCW pairs for my hexacopter and they really broke my wallet.

I you have time please visit Multi Rotor Helis Group. Two-blade 8" to 10" SF props are very popular there. I'm quite sure GWS can make a big impact on multicopter community by providing affordable 2-blade CW and CCW SF propeller pairs. Please consider this Chen.

One more thing Chen. If GWS finally decide it to produce 2-blade CW CCW SF props. Please pick color other than orange please, my tricopter looks like a toy with orange GWS propellers. I think it would look cooler with black or grey props. Never mind the orange antenna.

Hi Vinlee,

I'll discuss your suggestions with R&D and Boss to see if the counter rotating 2-blade props can be released. Thank you

Hi Ilufa,

Thank you for this good information.
Hopefully, you did apply GWS propeller or mixer on your quadcopter.
