Wow! This is perfect to swing a Four Blade Propeller!

Out of interest, why would you run a four blade on the Trojan?

Me personally, I wouldn't sacrifice flight time as the four blade is less efficient than a 3 or even better 2 blade prop. Looks cool though and would sound nice

That is the GWS 4-Blade, 10 X 8 X 4 and it is very efficient.

I get more flight time than the others!

Oh man that prop must be way out of balance. Sounds like a weed wacker!

looking for a multimeter

i'm in the market for one. trying to get amp and watt info on my trojan and spit. i tried home depot and they only have 10 A and iirc it was just DC. with my 60A esc i would guess i need at least a 60A AC range? also, how would i measure watts? are wattmeters not incorporated in multimeters (i didn't see any watts on the multimeters i checked out at home depot and the few i saw online).
advice and recommendations appreciated. thanks.

That sound is not because the Prop is out of balance (If it was it would tear up the first generation cheap plastic Motor Mount).

That is the sound of the Typical Flex of the GWS Plastic Blades.

If that's the case, why don't you seek a "WATT METER" especially made for our hobby. I have an old Astro Flight Watt Meter but, does not have any way to keep (record) the test parameters after disconnecting so, I have to resort to Video capture. The new Watt Meters for our hobby now have memory and battery backup so, it flashes the highest attained Test Parameters after you disconnect.

If you are seeking something that has a dual purpose then, I have a Craftsman AMP Meter (Clamp Around) DC that does great and it is on the cheap side compared to the other True RMS meters.

Here is the new Craftsman AC/DC AMP (Clamp Around) Meter and oh, by the way the Clamp around meter you do not have to place the meter between the circuit as it measures using inductive pickup.

But, it ain't going to make the model fly like it has flaps!!!

With all that thrust from the 4-Blader it can just hang and pass you by like it was walking speed.

Each to their own bud! I'd get bored of that pretty quickly it certainly looks unique floating around like that!
