[QUOTE=Stark;22553136]Then you obviously haven't tried the GWS DD/HD propellers. Very different from the SF series.



Agree with Stark and DD props. Not quite as much power (torque), but a much stronger and smoother running prop.

Worst crash ever on the CY. I managed to rip: (1) both flaps half way off; (2) one wing from the spar back to the trailing edge; (3) the fuse just after the ail servo; (4) the top of the fuse about 2 inches back from the motor; and (5) the bottom of the fuse back from about 1 inche back from the motor is hanging on for dear life. Managed to break the prop too (the rubber band failed to save prop.)

Another half a bottle of Welder and she be back in the air by the morning

Wow - did you fly into a chipper/shredder? That must have been a heck of a crash!

Yeah ikr. I did a full throttle blender into the ground and just broke the prop and ripped the fuse by the mount mount in a few places.

Surely you took before, during and after pics! That sounds like something to see.

If the motor comes with the suitable adapter you can also use the GWS 8x4 DD. I really like this prop. Very durable and smoth power.
Thanks, I just ordered some GWS 8x4.3 SF props.

My Tuff Prop hub was completely chewed up after two batteries. Not much area for it to fit on the shaft.

I live near few slopes but not as beautiful as the slopes shown in the videos. The consequence of living and flying near the coast is that I've learned to harrier landing with the wind. I'm now suck landing without the wind.

Yeah haha I had to put welders round the inside rim of my prop to sop the bibrations from sitting on the hub incorrectly. (No spare prop) it would wear off every 10 flights and id have to scrape it out and put more in.
