Recover high to start with till you get the feel

I'm guessing that when not busy posting here, you're yelling at the neighborhood kids to get off your lawn.

If you couldn't supply the information in a more positive manner then why bother at all.

Clearly to some members it is difficult to understand which way a prop has to go on therefore the initial question.. As usual it's only easy if you know how.

There are also many members who still don't know which is the leading edge therefore this part of your answer is of no use to those trying to understand the fundamentals of prop installation.

You could have at least supplied an attachement to indicate what you are talking about to those who have no idea.

Also thousands of members, including myself find that PREDOMINANTLY the lettering and numbering is on the front of the propeller when looking at it head on mounted on the motor or engine, and is PREDOMINANTLY discussed on many threads as being so.
Therefore this will be the case for the mentioned pusher prop on the rear mounted motor of the Stryker.

I can't believe that you have sprung up on this large thread only to post such a degrading contribution.

With respect Gerry I'm not particularly impressed with your poorly worded reply which may have only served to make newer members reluctant to ask future technical questions.
AS opposed to your answer which might make knowledgeable users less likely to help?

Look, I'm, not saying his answer was sugar coated, but I read it straight and as likely intended -- I MYSELF am exasperated at how many times (including just today at the field) we hear these 'rules of thumb' or 'cook book' or 'mnemonic' type answers bandied about, INSTEAD of the more correct answer which is learn what a leading edge is if you don't know, and check the prop direction yourself, and you'll never have an issue with a prop, including a Graupner or other one that does not necessarily conform to your recipe or meme approach.

I saw nothing particularly rude or condescending in HIS answer, in fact, I consider it the BEST answer, and well considered and valuable, but I certainly do see nothing but the whip in yours.

Perhaps you would please give Gerry the apology I think he is certainly owed for your own rudeness, and then let's move on, and ALL try to be both helpful AND friendly, as well?

I do think we manage that around here about 99.5% of the time, but we can all have our moments. Including me.

Please see my reply already made on the point. I honestly do not think it is a rudeness thing, I think it is simply a 'teach a man to fish' versus buying fish-shaped -protein-patty thing -- the 'fish-like protein-patty' might 'suffice' in some or most instances, but it is certainly not the same as knowing how to fish, catching a fish, and eating a real fish.

This one?

So i put a 5x7 pusher prop on the stryker tonight to bench test it and had to reverse the motor to get it to "blow" in the right direction. Am i missing something simple here?


The problem is that the answer is contingent:

* You said it is now blowing the right direction. Based on that, "No - problem has been solved. Nothing missed."

* However, you seem to want further explanation. If so, then the answer would be "Yes. It comes with a regular prop, not a pusher from the factory. Simple."

Thanks tracknoob. The simple answer it comes from the factory with a regular prop. I can't believe i missed something " that simple". By the way, i flew it with that 5x7 today and i noticed more speed and better vertical.

Awesome! Glad it all got figured out. (think that's prolly 7 x 5 - we seem to be on a reversal kick lately heh heh)



and, a note to the thread -- I'm sorry for my own snippish reply to what I perceived as a snippish reply to someone else's reply which was perceived as....


(Well, I think you see where I'm going with this!


Just please accept my apology -- I really love the generally friendly 'feel' of RCG, so to the extend I may hurt it with my own post, mea culpa.)
