Heard GWS getting out of the biz. So future for props is uncertain. Massive Overkill was the one that said it on one of the thread.

I wonder how big of a box 1000000 props need.

I've seen the price of some quads jump around at times.

Hey, the Original Post mentions a "one cell battery alarm". I'd like to know where I can get one. I have lipo alerts on my 2S and 3S birds but did not know anyone made a 1S version.

Thanks! After some digging on the net I found one sold by Amazon for $5.95 that only weighs 2.5gm and can do 1,2,or 3S.

Of coz, my lil friends helped me installing them...
That is superb. Thanks very much for the entertainment.

I still haven't taken mine out of the box yet, it hasn't been the weather to try her out outdoors. Roll on spring.

Banggood = bad idea

Good day to all! I just received my order from banggood today and ^&$# them. I ordered even pairs of everything and what I got was:

received my propellers today and WOW! 16 Props and only 1 set useable!! How is this?!? I ordered equal pairs? I now have 3 CCW black/ 4 CCW Orange/ 4 CCW Grey and then... 4 CW Orange/ 1 CW Black. I ordered even pairs of CCW & CW so I could have 4 sets, now I have 1. Please advise as I would like to keep doing business with you and I don't want to explode this all over US forums and advise them not to order from you ever. This must be fixed! Thanks for your time and hope to hear from you soon. Attached is a pic of the props.

That was that body to the email I wrote them....I hope they can fix this. Doubt it though. Just have to find a better source i guess...

I had similar problems with Goodluckbuy. It took some back-and-forth emails, but I eventually got things fixed.

As for the props themselves, I am finding them a little too responsive at the moment: if I lose control for a moment (like when recovering from a flip), my mQx just takes off really fast in some random direction.

Check your order mate, I have done this two times before, because of the buggy webshop! If you set the product type, it wont add that to the cart by default, you should repeat adding it and delete what you don't need... I have ordered 2 pairs of CCW props instead of a set because of this...

I checked my order over multiple times and I am right. Ordered even numbers of each. I even did what you said...double Oder and then subtract. Lol..they still F'd it up. So now I ordered from GLB. Maybe they will be better. Worth it. We will see as I will post again.

I just took the new props on a "spin" in 10+mph winds and they work great! Less throttle needed and a lot faster!!
