I'd agree with klz, those little Turnigy motors are fantastic value and will last.

Hi Phil, I would go with a 5inch 3 bladed prop I cannot get on hobbyking at work but I'm sure they will have a drone prop suitable.  I have not done this yet and i am no expert what I have posted is what I plan to try.

If you do this before me please post how you get on.

A number of us at our club run Swamp Dawgs with these propellers - loads of power and much quieter than 2 or 3 bladed ones.  Recommended.

OK parts all here upgrade done and tested on kitchen floor old motor old prop it did on not move on 2s & 3s just lots of noise, new motor new prop 2s moved around the kitchen on 3s it was like being on water.  I am taking it to the lake Saturday so hopefully get a video of it but I would imagine 2s would be nice and controllable 3s will be crazy speed  :}

All of the 3 blade props I have bought off ebay for my drones have been great, whether they are 5 through to 10 inch have all held up well until I hit a tree. I have some 10 inch ones on order for the airboat I am about to start building with a 2208 brushless motor from an old drone. The Swamp Dawgs look great and from the videos I have seen they run well.
