Default Storm Launcher prop

Where would I buy replacement props for a storm launcher if I don't want to modify the engine(s) or the internal parts of it. If I have to go through air hogs directly would I just need to call them or is there somewhere online i could order prop replacements from them?

Someone mentioned over at rcgroups mentioned that http://www.hobby-warehouse.com/prsetlrtou.html possibly works and they are in the process of trying it. I'll update the thread once that person responds.

The Outlaw props work really well, but are not quite as tight fitting as the stock SL props.

Which particular prop is it, skywinder defender or resistor for the SL?
Those were the ones I saw on their website. I busted a right prop and I've been fixing it with a two part apoxy to this point. It works fine, it broke down the middle of the cone, so its in two complete halfs. I've repaierd it twice now, and its a real pain.


Thanks

Well. I answered my own question. I called SpinMaster and they have replacement props for $2.95 U.S plus $1.95 shipping. And they have them in stock.

Not sure on shipping time, but it would no doubt be based on your location.

Always nice to have another source but those a more than 2X the cost of ordering them direct from airhog.

I just got my SL this week and I've been having problems with getting the props to stay on. I watched the video on the airhogs website to ensure I knew what I was doing, read all of the documentation, and I can't seem to get them on tight enough.

The first time I spun up the engines, the prop flew across the room. I only put it up just enough to get the props to spin. I reattached it, and didn't have a problem as I was breaking in my motors at about 50% throttle on the first battery pack. The second battery pack I was just wheeling it around my apartment (tons of room, again only at 50%) and the prop flew off again. This time it snapped in half.

Luckily spinmaster sent me an extra pair of props, but it just doesn't look like this prop can go on as tight as the other one (yeah, the one that flew off :S). I'm worry once I take it out to fly it and I start to give it some juice the props gonna come lose and I'll be watching my first flight smash into the ground.

Anyone have any advice? Maybe the rotor has a defect? Maybe this prop has a defect? I think even the one that flew off got on tighter than this one.

smear some CA on the shaft. (don't use your finger)

this should thicken the shaft and help keep the props on.

Will there be a problem getting them off later if they snap during use? Additionally, one of my props still doesn't look like it is on as good as the other one. Is it going to cause issues that they aren't quite balanced, even if it is stable with the CA?

don't glue the props on... let the glue dry first. you're just making the shaft "thicker"

if it later proves unnecessary, then scrape the CA off.

Oh.

I don't know that that would help. The rotor shafts almost seem like they are too big already - like, I can't get the props all the way on and it seems like that is why they are coming off. The other prop goes on way farther.

sorry, I had it backwards then.
