Thank you....It is an 8x6e. I just bought one from a guy that ran it once around the parking lot and rolled it and broke the prop. The half still on it said what it was....I had to cut the shaft and install a different prop nut as the props I have were too big for the spinner setup. Worked like a charm and she is ready to go....
Well, the little bird flies quite well, but when the wind picks up, it's a bit squirly. Had about 6 successful flights today and on the last one she nosed over pretty hard and bent the motor shaft. I am looking to replace the motor with something from headsuprc like:
Thanks for the reply Steve. I was looking at those prop savers. Will they also work with the threaded shaft?
I was also looking at this motor: http://www.headsuprc.com/servlet/the...ushless/Detail
I'll check out the combos as well. Any reason why I would replace the esc as well?
Yeah, I think that motor would work as well. You could use the existing esc, but as I recall it is only 18A. That should work for the 2822 or 2409-18 motor, but the 2409-12 will require up to 25A, so you should go to the bigger esc.
Again, the 2822 or 2409-18 will give longer flights, and the 2409-12 will give more power.
I think I used GWS HD 9x5's and 9x6's. Great little plane, but a bit tricky to handle if you go with aggressive control surface settings; and that front wheel is a weak link in the setup.
Longer flights are for me. I am still really new to this. Running 3s 1300's in her with an 8x6 prop with the stock motor. Was going to use the same size, but maybe I'll try a couple different sizes. The nose wheel was horrible. I converted it to a tail dragger. Much nicer for the dirt landings. And takeoffs for that matter. I really appreciate all the advise...
I was flying my Cessna 182 skyartec and the propeller snapped, I took of the nose cone and tried finding a way to swap the propeller over to the new one. Can anyone please help I am so stuck!
If you have the stock brushless Skyartec set-up - then once you remove the spinner cone ... you should have one or two nuts holding the propellor on ... Undo these two nuts ... PULL of the propellor ...
Fitting is reversal of that. Note that you may need one of the adaptor rings to reduce prop shaft hole to correct size for shaft.
The standard Skyartec bell motor has a long threaded shaft to take the prop. If you have a short plain shaft - then that is not Skyartec original and most likely has a collet style fitting. Undo the nut .. remove washer and prop ... replace as reverse. Note you may have to ream out the prop shaft hole in propellor to fit or fit a ring to reduce to shaft size.
