Sold
Special Intro – 8” – 10” – 11” – 12” Carbon Fiber Gemfan

Offer Closed

Good evening all - Sorry I did not get back to you sooner......

I need to go thru all the PM's and posts to figure who requested first. I'll contact you later tonight - but please realize - I am looking for a decent review of performance, prop balance and value. This site is never short of opinions, and I thought this would be an efficetive way to accomplish this. I had no idea the response would be so intense. If you are not one of the lucky 8, I will be offering these props on my website soon (although not at this exact price) - However I will take into consideration your offer to review and provide an aggressive sale price.

Thank you all for the wonderful response. We'er all working together to get the best flying craft at decent prices. This is a great way of sharing.

Thank you,
Dan Phillips


These Carbon Fiber props are by Gemfan. I brought in two sets of each size for evaluation – one set for me and one set for a customer to evaluate.

There are several styles of props – none of them have the DJI hub.

I’m looking for feedback here everyone, should I include these in our prop line? I must admit I did not think and only ordered 4 per set, so hex and octo guys – sorry (I know – big mistake)!

Intro pricing – I will likely only get to place one more order before the Christmas Season – so if you want some of these Carbon Fiber props, please let me know what you are interested in.

Heavy lift guys ….. Look at the 11x50 and the 12x60 prop hubs – they are massive !

Please – only one or two sets per pilot – I would like to get some varied opinions and evaluations. If you do not have a heavy lift rig, please let someone with the heavy lift requirements order the 11x50 and 12x60.

Shipping – USA $3.50 per set (I’ll be shipping these in a box)

Carbon Fiber Props:
8x45 $ 6.00 each - - - set of 4 $24
10x38 $7.50 each - - - set of 4 $30
10x45 $7.50 each - - - - set of 4 $30
11x47 $8.50 each - - - - set of 4 $34
11x50 $8.50 each - - - - set of 4 $34
12x3.8 $9.00 each - - - -set of 4 $36
12x4.5 $9.00 each - - - -set of 4 $36
12x6.0 $9.00 each - - - -set of 4 $36

PM is much better - or post here......

Thanks, Dan

theocerbo,
Do you have a heavy lift unit? I'm trying to get a good eval to determine if I should carry this props on a regular basis.

knifeedge63,

First 12" - PM me for payment info. Are you willing to provide feedback? I think these are great props for the price but I need realistic, experienced, objective feed back. I do not earn much on these props and want to confirm they are as good as I think they are before I bring more in....

Dan

Can't fit more than 1 set in a box for shipping?

I am planning a Hex or Octo build, and will be needing more than 4 to fly.

I could have tested the 12x3.8 on a heavy lift for you but I noted you only have 4. Let me know if you get a set of 6 that you need tested.
