Clear or White Propeller replacemnts

Post by cafeciaojoe »

Hi!

I am making the crazy fly look like a flower for an exhibition and was wondering where I could find some clear or white propellers?

I am struggling to find any with he .8mm inner diameter that the stock propellers have.

Any suggestions?

This is the closest i have gotte, but the shaft size is 1mm apparently.

I am looking for .8mm

Alternatively, if anyone could pick what props these are, I will chase them down, I found this image on the Bitcraze guest blogger website.

Thanks again!

You could replace the motors with 1mm shaft ones as well. 7x16 (preferred) or 7x20 motors work.

Looks like all the 7x16 motors have .8mm shafts. which wont fit those clear propellers.

Will it be much of a problem to fir the 7x20? Why did you say the 7x16 were preferred?

No it should work fine with 7x20 but the motor mounts was designed for 7x16 which means they might break a bit easier because of added weight and lever. Also vibrations from unbalanced propellers might get amplified more.
