Description

A pair of very high quality GM 14 x 7 folding prop blades, suitable for HyperFlight's and other makes of folding prop yokes and spinners.

These blades are thinner (they have a higher aspect ratio) than normal folding propeller blades, allowing larger diameter blades to be fitted without pulling too much current. This increases the propulsive efficiency of the powertrain. They are also engineered to fold closer to the fuselage, and cause less drag when folded than other props. See photos 3 and 4 for a visual comparison of GM, RF and Aeronaut props, kindly produced by Andre Jeber Demetrio.

Note this product consists of two carbon propeller blades only. The central spinner/yoke assembly is not included. Also it is common for prop blades to not fit all spinner/yokes perfectly as supplied. It is often necessary to reduce the width the blade root slightly to ensure free folding movement. Also the cut out in the spinner cone often needs to be increased to allow the blades to fully extend. The root of the blade should not touch the spinner cone when the prop is fully opened.

Very Nice

Purchased the GM 14-7 to replace a Aeronaut 14-6. Bench tests show a slight increase in thrust and a two amp lower draw. Non-scientific flight tests with a recording variometer indicates a better climb. They fold very flat against the fuselage.

Good prop

Good prop.Light and pretty design. Mounted on an SK3 35-58 840 Kv, on a Graphite 2 El.
Pulls 36 A on 3S, 425 W...PErhaps in a future, i'll buy an 15*8 for this same model.
In comparison with an 14 *8 Aeronaut, the 14*7 GM same tarcts the model, but with less current.
Unfortunetaly, there is actually no current measures for this prop, or other GM props.
