- 3” twin blade prop
- 2mm press fit and T mount
- Will fit 1.5mm shafts with T mount
- Very low load
- 1202.5 or 1303 motors
- Will work okay on 1103
- ~4500-5000kv 3S or ~7200-8000kv 2S
- On a powerful motor and 3S ~6000kv, the prop will flitter a little at the top RPM
- AUW under 120g strongly recommended
Gemfan really stepped up with this TP3 specific design and executed the spec fantastically well.
At just ~0.75g with a very gentle pitch, this prop is designed to have very high response and operate at higher RPM’s. As a result, low speed flight performance is ever so slightly more slippery compared to a triblade. Overall the defining characteristics of this prop are great response, and incredible efficiency with a touch more speed than the 3016 triblade. Efficiency is 20-50% higher compared to the 3016 triblade depending on AUW and flight style. Durability will vary based on AUW. At ~100g AUW, it has very high durability but add an extra 50g to the AUW and you’ll start bending the blade in hits.
The general Toothpick setup is intended to be low weight with small motors. This prop specifically designed for this application is intended for an AUW of under 120g. It is NOT designed for a 300g 3”. It will NOT perform well with such a setup. The thin and very low pitch blade will not hold up to high weight stress. It will suffer to generate the necessary thrust to perform well and will especially suffer when trying to change directions.
I have to confess, that I have not flown the props yet, since my Babytooth build is far from complete. Waiting for parts yet.
But based on the reviews and videos explaining the basics of propeller design and also the key design cornerstones which Kabab has strived after I have to say that I am impressed.
The feel and touch of the props is nice, the weight is almost none. The colour in grey looks great, in my next order I might even try the transparent colour if available. And some "real" colour for the sake of it.
I am mighty impressed of the work and dedication shining through the videos and the honesty of how Kabab explains his developement mishaps and highlights. His commitment in developing better products for this hobby is like a guiding light on the night sky.
I am very keen on building my Babytooth and then start flying it.
In the mean time I keep flossing my teeth :-)
Love these on my Toothpick 3" nice balance of bite, smoothness and quiet too
So far, they’re great on the babytooth! I’m not good enough to quantify the differences between these and the tri-blade ones, but these have a very nice feel while flying.
good, high quality props
you put them on, they stay on and they work great!
