Anyone else out there had problems with hobbyking props ? Have 2 carbon props , both turned out hollow . An enough hollow that I refuse to use them, they may hold togeather, but outside of a safety issue, I would be scared of them coming apart an bending crank. Just wondering

Re: hobby king carbon props

yeah stay away. I like a lot of HK stuff, but there is plenty of their stuff to avoid too.

though I still use a HK CF folder on a glider ... but it is low rpm and a cheap slow plane that can easily fly deadstick - ha

Re: hobby king carbon props

A few companies are making hollow carbon props now Al. Though I haven't used any HK units I have used larger PT hollow carbon props on electric power without issue.

Re: hobby king carbon props

What's wrong with hollow cf props? Most are aren't they? Zoars are hollow. And I've been using them for a while.

You're over thinking it.

Re: hobby king carbon props

Mejzliks are hollow. I have been running a pair on an ultralight for two years now.

I would avoid the hobbyking CF props because they are pretty low quality and have large differences in mass compared to the higher end CF props.

If hollow props worry you just get some nice wooden ones. Xoars are reasonably priced.

Re: hobby king carbon props

I have actually ran up to 32-10 hk carbon props just to try them out and everything seems good. But I typically run falcon, good price and local for me. You get what you pay for, the finish wasn't very nice on the hk ones I found.
