Links to cheap props and parts online


Actually, I'll just use this thread to post links to places to buy props online:

thebulkpropguy.com - 20 pair of GemFan 5030 / 5045 props for $15.50, OR GemFan 6030 / 6045 props for $18.50, including shipping from the US. That makes these the cheapest, fastest props I've found yet. Must buy in quantities of 20 pair. That makes these cost about $0.78 per pair, the cheapest quality prop I've found yet.

ubuyadrone.com - 4 pair of 5" props for $4.69, not bad in a pinch.

Banggood.com has several cheap props:
Diatone 5030 props (transparent) - 2 pair for $1.07 if you order 10 packs. At $0.54 per pair, these are the hands-down-cheapest 5" props I've seen yet. However, they flex and aren't as good as the ABS or GemFan props, in my opinion.
ABS 5045 props, if you buy at least 10 packs from the Chinese (CN) warehouse, they are $0.96 per pair, but take ~3 weeks.

I have a bunch of other prop links, but these are my top 5 go-to choices when buying props. The others are typically more expensive, slower, or untested sites. I've purchased all of the above props and would do so again.

The banggood diatones seem good for practice when you expect to crash and break a lot of props. The bulkpropguy.com 5045's are what I use when I want to go fast.

Here is a link to a site with cheap gemfan bulk prices shipped from the U.S.

Works out to about $0.63 per prop. I just ordered a 10 pack.

Here's a link to the 700 TVL CCD camera ($17) and 32 channel 200 mW fpv transmitter ($14, RP-SMA) which I have on my quad right now. They both seem to work fine. I also got some cheap $7 antenna off banggood which seem to be ok.

Oh, and here's a link to the new 'unbreakable' props I see a lot of people talking about online. I think they only come as 5040's, or 6030's. I ordered some of the 5040's to try out, I have no idea if they'll be as tough as people claim. There are some pretty encouraging youtube videos of people banging the heck out of them without damage, and RCModelReviews did a favorable video here.

Here is a link to the almost indestructible props that I use. I absolutely love these and they take an incredible amount of abuse. You can also order from SurveilZone but these are shipped from USA so you'll get them much faster.

Here's a link to the bigger case I got, which can hold my entire kit including quad, headplays, transmitter, batteries, etc, etc. It claims internal dimensions are (L x W x H): 19 1/2" x 13 1/2" x 8", but in my experience they overestimate by about a half inch. $47 with free shipping right now.
