    Hello, I'm building a Hexacopter and bought a set of 6 motors. The motors came with prop adapters, but I need to get 3 CCW adapters. The problem is I have no idea how to buy prop adapters. Thanks in advance! Motor...

    Ailerons - two servos one input

    Hello all. I have been looking all over flite test.com and YouTube to find out how am I supposed to connect two servos to one aileron input on my 6 channel spectrum receiver.

    Propellers, Props, or as I call them "Plastic Sticks I can break!"

Although a licensed pilot, I seem to like to land prop first in these RC planes.:black_eyed: Having bought a bunch of props initially, I am trying to figure out which are...

    Multirotor Aerodynamic Modelling by NASA

    Most Reliable/Best Brand of Props?

    It won't be long before I'll need to buy the first set of props for my quad build and there are so many options out there I'm spoiled for choice (building a Tarot Ironman 650 with NTM Prop Drive 28-30S 800KVs). In the past wood has always been my favorite for glow models, but after doing some...

    Prop Problems:

    Today I went to my field, assembled my plane, and throttled up. Then the prop saver's rubber band flew off into some grass. Does anyone know why it came off, or if I am doing something wrong?

    Most cost effective 8x4 props?

    Sorry if this has been discussed, I tried to search but this forum is huge. I'm a noob so this is in reference to the beginner speed build kits which I've been using as templates. It turns out that prop savers can't save props from straight nose dives. What's the most cost-effective prop setup...
