Re: three blade prop

No, but I have a Telemaster with a 3 blade prop, and a CL-215 twin engine with a three blade prop, and both are electric. Telemaster flies OK but not overpowered. It is used for picture taking and candy drop. The CL-215 has not yet flown, but planned for next spring from water. I don't know enough about the electrics, but expect the CL-215 has plenty of power. On the CL-215, I am using two 3s, 4000 ma Li-Po's, two Turnigy C3548-1100 motors, two 60 Turnigy 60 amp EXC's. The propeller pitch is adjustable (vario-props) and are presently adjusted for 8 inch pitch. Spring time will tell the story.

Re: three blade prop

Hello Jimmy:

I'm using a Master Airscrew 10x6 three blade prop on my E-Flight Beaver on floats. Motor is an E-Flight .32 running on four cells; more than enough power.
