Post compatible props
Hi guys,

any idea, if these props are compatible with the QS?

http://www.rcdude.com/servlet/the-2136/Gaui-500X-8-dsh-inch-Prop/Detail

If you search around, you find out, that they are available in the colours of the rainbow (even "glow in the dark" - yeah!), I remember the QuadShot Team used them in pink and green on earlier prototypes, didn't they?

Anyway, they are parts for the GAUI 500X for example.

What do you think?

Thank you, webman

Hi, in general, 8"x4.5" lightweight plastic props (as those are) should work, assuming they have either 5mm or 7mm center holes. The aluminum propsavers that come with the QS are reversible and have a 5mm side and a 7mm side - check the pic at http://wiki.thequadshot.com/w/images/2/ ... it_103.jpg.

Having different color props for normal vs reverse rotation is definitely a good way to ensure you always have the correct prop mounted to the correct motor!

Pink on the left and green on the right saved us once when it was windy and the QS got blown far away; right and left were distinguishable when it was flying on the wing without wasting time or energy to test the responses to the controls.
