I have one on my Beast and Sbach and 2 testers that need them. As soon as I hear back from the testers they will be for sale.

What material are they made out of?

RE: Hobbyking linkie- yep, those are the ones.

Hmmm...mine (GWS DD 5030) fit right on the adapter plate shaft, snug as a bug...I'll take a few photos when I get home tonight...at werk now.

EDIT: oh, wait...I can't take pics of the adapter...lol...no Beasties in the hanger right now.



Bud, werkin' Bud



EDIT again: forgot I had these (kinda blurry) pics...GWS 5030 on stock adapter plate/shaft w/ stock screw, easy peasy:

gws 5030 fit right on mine. Spinner glued on ok. 5043 seems to have thicker hub. some have said remove back plate. I ran mine with the plate for a while and it worked ok. Went back to the 5030 for the time being.

hummm i put on a 8x4 gws I cut it to 6x4 maybe the 8 center hub is thicker? I do not know don't have a reg 5x4 here.
the screw would not tighten down when i ran the motor the screw backed off and the prop them became loose.

guess I will go to hobbytown tom. see if have any gws 5040 props. or a stock one for now seemed to fly fine with stock.

No worries, just thought I would offer. Besides, I like the fact you're trying to help someone who's down/grounded. Hope the testing goes good.

Aha! The GWS 8X4 has a much thicker hub, different ID, etc. (I know 'coz I have some for my larger craft) Therein lies the culprit.

ep,

I used a slightly longer prop screw to be safe.
Old sub-micro servo mounting screw works excellent.

Ha...my kid would love one of those...my MCPx would tear it apart...and rightly so.

Speaking of fast Roj...why haven't you gotten an MCPx yet?? Bit...hmm...fast?


nah...wee Beastie ain't as fast as say...an MCPx or Rare Bear or something more exotic...but it helps when the swervos wrk properly. (ship #1):

http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showp...postcount=7597



Also helps when they come from the factory with straight tailfeathers eh. (ship #2):

http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showp...postcount=7976


Can't fly 'em when they ain't built right!


(Methinks some improvement needs to be happenin in the QC Depts at certain Chinese factories, and HH needs to look into it ahem *cough* grumble grumble I'm not the only one grumble.....)

I think Bud started it.

I take my blimp to party shops with large tanks when it needs to be filled.
They will usually fill-er-up for $5.

Top it off with a disposal tank.
