APC folding prop adaptor for Hacker motors


HI THERE;

What would be the best prop adaptor to attach an APC
9x5 folding prop with a 30mm spinner to a Hacker B20-xxx
with the gearbox attached?

Thanks, eh.

I looked into this once, but didn't get very far. Someone else posted that Icare could supply the right stuff, but I never got around to writing them. Thay are an Ezone sponsor. Also, Azarr sells APC folders and small Hackers, so he may have some info. Ecubed is his company name.

Since the APC Folders have an 8mm prop hole, the real problem is finding a prop adaptor with a 3mm motor/gearbox shaft and an 8mm prop shaft, haven't found one yet, but with patience, you can shim the prop using various tubing combinations.

Forget the adaptor and use an integrated solution! I can supply a HM Lightspinner in whatever diameter you need, with the metal yoke bored to fit the 3mm shaft of the Hacker gearbox.

I bought an adapter from Kirk @ New Creations. I think it's a MP Jet. He supplied me with a sleeve also to fit inside the hub of the APC folder.

Unfortunately APC chose to go against convention and their blades are not drilled for a pin, you're required to use their hubs with their blades unless you modify/drill them yourself.

A shame really, since the blades seem very efficient. Of course, the spinner/yoke solution is a great solution for other brand folders.
