How to choose the right prop.
« on: November 16, 2011, 07:07:12 PM »

Had a little accident with my kyosho bluestreak today, ended up wearing the ends of the prop down, put it in the water and it has seriously affected the speed. Problem is now I don't know what size prop it should be, so any help would be brilliant, afraid I'm short on info on it though. Don't know what size motor it is or anything as it was all in there when I got it. If boat measurements would help I'll measure it tomorrow and post it up.

Thanks.

It's not a "standard" screw on prop, it's a 'dog drive' favoured' by the Japanese manufactures and race boys.
I would say it's about 32-38mm and you should readily able to get a metal equivalent.
What diameter is the shaft?

Hey Bikerdude - your immediate problem aside, that's a great question anyway. How does one choose the right Prop?

No Rugby answers allowed because I don't understand that either   {-)

The shaft looks to be M4.
