I'm looking for some prop adapters I can get in the US that will fit the S800 and graupners. The latest set of props we got from DJI are more out of balance than the last set.

Nevertheless I'd like to try with reinforced arms, and want to use carbon cloth for this. Each arm will have 7 grams carbon, and approximately 4 grams resin.
Hate to admit that I could be wrong. With the new arms all the vibes are completely gone. Even with the original props the blade-tracking is gone.
Also the occasional strange vibes in the GH2/Zenmuse video is completely gone, and didn't see any white flashes.
I'm very happy with the results .

There is a reason why 9 out of 10 commercial frames out there use CF tubes or similar rigid constructions for the arms... Even perfect propellers will cause some vibrations during flight. And those vibrations you have to kill as quickly as possible, instead of amplifying them by
letting the arms oscillate.

And thanks for doing all the work. Always great to see practically tests match up with the theoretic.

Thanks Robert what can I say CS 5 star. I read your email and saw the video.
Too bad you don't leave closer so I can send you some Souvlaki.

Cheers

I have been following ALL your posts ... (great work and thanks for your opinions)
Are you talking about the arms you modifyed (reinforced arms and carbon cloth), when you say "new arms" ?? Or dji just released new design?? Pardon, but just to be clear

(Sorry but my english sometimes is not as good as I want)

I'm looking to order prop adapters tonight. I saw some a few weeks back, but didn't bookmark them. Has anyone found others that fit.

I bought 2 of these a month ago, 1 was DOA and had to raise a dispute with PayPal as Hobbyking were unresponsive to my support request. Still waiting on the refund or replacement for 3 weeks now. The second unit works perfectly but the voltages appear to be a little higher then actual when measuring with a voltmeter.
To be safe I added the 3 voltages measured, first the Quannum, DJI Datalink & my voltmeter then divided by 18 and used the result to calibrate the pack to the Wookong in the Assistant. Not sure about the range yet as been too busy working and haven't had time to fly.
Hope this helps
