Makeing your Composite Props
Ok guys, I have an ideal, but im looking for suggestions.
So I just picked up a sweet 160in C130, while its very nice, Im trying to decide between running DLE20 or electric. But Im thinking electric is the way to go if I can run a semi scale prop.
So I found this pic of another guy who built a semi scale prop for the C130, Im not sure if its functnal, but I want one that is.
I can tell from his other pic, is he took APC 16X12 nitro props, and cut them so it can have 6 blades, with 2 aluminum plates, with 2 rods going throw the root of the prop, with a bunch of Hysal (amazing epoxy) to smooth and help hold it all in.
Im not sure if this would hold together, Im thinking its going to take a 295KV 1.60 electric motor for this 6 blade 16X12 prop.
So I have read about using clay, to make a mold so I can lay this set up in carbon fiber. With a foam in the middle to make the blades lighter.
Has anyone done this? has anyone made there own carbon props?
