2 blades or 3 blades?

Post by Midnight Music » Fri Jun 23, 2017 3:54 pm

I am curious, what the criteria is as to when to use a 2 blade prop or a 3 blade prop. Does it apply to certain specific models?

A true enough answer for TRW…but considering it costs us nothing to punch the radio button…I had the same question. So let me ask this:

Is there a physics/power difference between the two props modeled?

there's an ever so slight sound difference but no difference in how they fly... (as per the real world)
