First look says that 5" props are too small. This assuming you have the 2822 1800kv motors.

Top Notch !

Chris, just wanted to send a thanks for the fast shipping and excellent shipping on the CNC 355's.

Here is a pic of my 2 armattans. The only improvement I could suggest is the feet. Both the old and new ones don't like hard landings. I have replaced mine as you can see, and am going to see my machinist/engineer friend to try to design some new ones. If they work out I will send you some to replicate.

Thanks again !

Cut the curve up off of the pipe and they look pretty good.

I know that My Armattan M was incredibly fast compared to everything I had flown before, but for some reason it reminded me more of a Delorean. Maybe delorean styling with a Lamborghini drive train?

I had the nylon feet on my M370 and had no problems with them. They seemed to do the job nicely.

Justin my brother, your a life savor. I just ordered 2 sets and should be expecting them within a week. Shipping was extra cheap as well. Thanks again.

The best deal I've found yet on the 6" props are these that I found on eBay:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/290770825670...84.m1423.l2649
http://www.ebay.com/itm/300774837474...84.m1423.l2649
http://www.ebay.com/itm/300774837502...84.m1423.l2649
http://www.ebay.com/itm/300774837530...84.m1423.l2649
http://www.ebay.com/itm/300803743100...84.m1423.l2649

They come in sets of eight (4CW, 4CCW). They have many different colors too. I ordered 16 of them and have already gone through about half of those after many crashes. Granted they are coming from China so that kinda sucks, but then again, most of the props that are affordable do come from there. I didn't have to wait to long to get mine. I upgraded the shipping on both orders I placed (8 green, 8 black) for only $.50 extra and they got here in like a week. <---Not bad at all. Great prices too. Check em' out.

Ordered me 2 Zippy Flightmax 40C 2650mah batteries and some 1m long red and white led light kits from Hobby King. Hoping I can easily figure out how to install the lights. ;-) Now I just need to get my servo leads, adapters, and spare props. Can someone tell me if these props are comparable/suitable replacement to what I'll be receiving from Chris?
