GWS China just finished 2nd batch of GWS 2205 BL motors and ESC.

Catch on time to tranship out from Hong Kong via TNT, UPS and Fedex before Chinese New Year Vocation started.

Pretty soon, world wide GWS flyers will receive them soon.

A sad day.

To all who shall hear this, greetings. A sad day has fallen here at GWS USA. We have lost a loved one in Richard Higly, who was the service officer at GWS USA. If you have ever called and talked to him; then you know what a kind person he was. I will miss him till the day that I die. He was my very dear friend. Jeffrey Hunter

He was one of the best. A very nice gental man with so much passion in RC model airplanes. He rode motorcycle to GWS USA everyday. I am very sure many GWS flyers spoke to him. Sorry to miss such a wonderful friend. He will always in mind and never forget.

I am assuming that this "New" Propeller is made to mount on the EPS-400C gearboxes with that size nut?

Hi guapoman2000

It would be one of the best propellers used on Formosa II.

No doubt however, it really depends on how you setup one's particular FORMOSA-II. For those that like 3D ship then perhaps it will be a good fit, however, for those that like to fly Sport and not 3D then, a smaller diameter propeller with a little more pitch maybe in order.

Hi Carlos

Yes, I agree with you. There is 1170 in line. Some more new propellers have been designing and testing for brushless motors.

Carlos.

I disagree with the premisis that the Formosa II meeds a smaller than 12 inch diameter propeller with a larger pitch to fly patern aerobatics.

I am curently using my Formosa II with a 300 Watt outrunner to learn to fly Sportsman Patern. The propeller I am using is an APC 10 x 5 Thin Electric because the GWS 10 x 6 HD is too fast for good aerobatics. With the larger pitch propellers the aeroplane gains too much speed on the down lines when the propeller is pulling the aeroplane toward the ground and looses too much speed on the up lines.

Ken, how about using a 250W on Formosa II for patern flights?

Ken,

I know that many of you refer that WATTs is WATTs but, it all depends on the Propeller RPMs. I don't seem to understand what you mean by

[PHP]"loosses too much speed on the up lines?"[/PHP]

A propeller will pull the model through say a very good round loop as long as the Propeller RPMs are sufficient even though you go with a smaller Propeller Diameter and considering you do change out one with a high pitch. I can understand if the airframe has lots of drag with a large round Cowling or fat FUSE that does not allow for Sport Flying then, I would assume the model would not be considered as a good Sport model to be begin with.

My Great Planes Super Sportster EP having less than 300 Watts with a Brushed Modified 550 motor allows for spectacular Sport flying. Just because you have less Watts does not mean that you will have an inadaquate power system to allow the model for Sport Flying and other manuvers. Depending on how you setup that particular power system and selection of Propeller, gearbox ratio etc.. will determine. My Sportster EP performs the best largest loops of any of my models in my fleet and performs low level inverted passes to end with 1/2 outside loop to bring her back right-side up.

The Sportster EP is powered by the Japanese Kyosho Endoplasma 16-turn (3,700 RPM/Volt) in the Electrify GD-600 gearbox using the pinion to provide for a 3.8:1 ratio and get this...swinging the APC "Sport" 9 X 8 Propeller!

http://media.putfile.com/Super-Sport...Endo--9X8-Prop

Oh, yeah, the Sportster tips the scale at a little over 3lbs. and has only 383 sq.-in. of wing area.

If you don't have the air speed, I guess the WATTs was not harnessed or setup correctly for the type of Sport flying I was referring to, unless of course in Australia, there's a different definition of this...
