Thought i’d do a separate topic for this one: Prop defined to be slow to match heavy weight rider with large wing and high drag.
Generated automatically by Caeses B-series propeller generator with inputs:
13.5 knots speed
3 blade, 15 deg rake
Axle dia 12mm
Hole pattern to match c80100 motor
I got it 3d-printed by a professional printer in carbon reinforced filament, result is really clean
Blades are super thin (probably too weak or flexible) but i got both the test print and the final print so i’ll do a carbon overlay on the test and try the other as it is.
Overlaying & vacuuming 2 layers of unidirectional carbon fiber on each side of the test prop
Let’s hope it’s worth the effort
Unbagged prop with a slight sanding. I will coat some layers of epoxy to finish the surface
The carbon test prop is now about ten times stiffer than the original 3D-print and overlay was succesful, surface will be clean
I tried this prop yesterday and it performs really well. No measurements are available, but it’s a lot better than the three blade i’ve used until now.
Coupled with the 80100 motor, 130kV at 10S voltage - it’s not fast but i can push 130kg straight out of the water at almost zero speed with just motor thrust (gong xxl wing)
