Title: Tamar propellers
Post by: ajb63 on May 09, 2019, 04:38:51 PM
Want to change to brass propellers on Model Slipway 1/16 Tamar Lifeboat.
Lost one of the original plastic propeller supplied in kit , and looking at Roboesch 40mm brass as replacements . Not sure whether to go for 3 or 4 blades and type A or C Type props. Good speed from the supplied props with kit running with brushless Tornado 3536 1050kv on 3s lipo. Any recommendations of what go for would be helpful. Thanks
Alan

There must be someone on the forum to give suggestions on propellers.
Thanks Alan

Alan,
         The photo`s are of 16-07 RNLB Lester, Cromer Lifeboat.
          The photo of the real boat was taken just before the anti-
          fouling was changed to white.

          The model photo shows brass 40mm 5 blade props from Prop Shop.
           Hope this helps.

          Bryan.
