The Snail 5048S Tri-Blade racing propeller has been extensively optimized for forward flight, unlike traditional propulsion systems that are designed for hovering. In wind tunnel tests it creates more thrust with less drag and uses less power than propellers with the same maximum thrust range.
The Snail 430-R ESC uses unique control algorithms to reduce Loop 800 response times by 21% compared to many products on the market. It makes racing aircraft more agile and more adept at sudden maneuvers including sharp turns and hard braking. Loop 800 is a measure of the time it takes a propulsion system to increase thrust from 100g to 800g and then decelerate to 400g. It is used to measure the responsiveness of a propulsion system.

These components require medium to advanced soldering skills, improper soldering or excessive heat may damage the component. We advise seeking advice or assistance if you're not familiar with soldering. These components are designed for use on smaller multi-rotors such as racing-quads and are susceptible to damage in crashes or improper use, which would not be covered by warranty. Due to damage that can occur from soldering or general use an inspection by one of our technicians may be required if a return is requested.
