Re: Blades & Hub

Re: Silent prop for drones.

I''ll have to check on the price of a 3D printer that can do that. I know there is one guy in the news recently selling or giving away plans, instructions or the program for an AR Lower Receiver and he came within a gnats butt going to jail for it. I still cant figure that since it is NOT illegal to...

Re: Silent prop for drones.

I agree at the smaller hobby scale of things. Many of the pros are running 30-36" props for movie production and even some large scale inspection jobs. like you said if it becomes or really is a problem with the sound, then the majors will likely jump in and fill the niche themselves leaving the Cot...

Silent prop for drones.

Any one with drone experience, can you tell me what RPM the props run at? Think its time for some silent drone props and injection molding is just the small scale ticket. Who makes the most silent prop for airboats now days? I can see a cottage industry opportunity if the majors don't think its wort...

Re: Cleaing Polymer

Typically white vinegar will either dissolve the minerals or help dissolve them. Get it by the gallon at the Dollar General Stores. IT works fairly slow and has to be kept wet but it generally will at least help. Try a 1-2 foot patch first to test before ya buy 10 gallons.

Folks I have held back on this since that silly legislation was enacted and nobody else has jumped on it but it is physically impossible for a flag that is 10x12 to be square. I simply couldn't believe someone in government actually wrote that. Then on the other hand maybe its just a sign of the tim...

We simply must add more term limits and add other blocks to becoming a career politician. It is a blight on our society to have people living off our tax dollars their entire career and then having their families living off of "in kind" benefits !

Re: Sanshandaobojue's airboat building 2017

Since that shaft will have the prop on one end, did you design in a thrust bearing. It is critical to prevent bearing failure.

Everything is looking good so far man.
