Sure. But basically, all the subjects are getting cut off.

Can you pm me a screen shot of what you mean

Gaza - can you make the subject line section in the forum topic list wider? It's cutting off the subject field really short.

Two blade versus three blade props

What';s the difference? Which is ';better';?


2 blade props are much easier to balance, 3 blade will give more lift for the same diameter but decent quality 3 blade are a lot more difficult to get your hands on than 2 blade.
So you see it';s not really a matter of which is best at the end of the day it comes down to which you can get the best quality of at a sensible price!
I think..........I think I am........therefore I am.............I think!


Darrell is right - practically speaking it';s much harder to get hold of good quality counter rotating 3 bladed props than 2 bladed props which is the biggest factor.

But if all else was equal a 3 bladed prop should give similar lift to a larger diameter 2 bladed prop, so it';s a way of moving more air without using longer props.
One circlip short of a quadcopter.
 1 lobe short of an antenna.



Generally speaking you would go down a size so if you have 10X5 2 blade you would go down to 9X5  3 blade or you do on planes
