New to the forum and just wanted to firstly say how exciting it is to finally see a viable electric paramotor, I can’t wait to order one from batch 4!
I wanted to ask about prop choice, and open a discussion about potential alternatives.
I have been flying r/c and drones for the last 20 years, and my knowledge comes from practical trials rather than academic theory, so am not claiming to know everything!
My observation is that I understand the maximum diameter is set by the frame, but 10” pitch seems suited to an airspeed much higher than the speed of a paramotor? This would lead to the prop stalling and not being completely efficient. In my experience, dropping to something in the 6” pitch range should produce similar thrust for a lower current draw.
Has anyone tested this?
