Twisted Hobbys Prop Saver Hub Assembly 101!

One of the most over looked aspects of profile models is the prop saver assembly and its functionality.  Lets go in-depth to take a look as all things involved with this nortirous setup.  Though the prop saver hub assembly setup has been used successfully in many applications over the years there has been some short comings we have addressed. Over the years Twisted Hobbys has achieved excellent results using the prop saver hub setup which is ideal for most all smaller models. The theory behind a prop saver hub setup is pretty simple. If you crash or nose-in your model instead of damaging your prop it will shift off of the hub which will save it.  This happens by allowing the energy that would normally damage the prop to now be redirected.  Makes sense right?  The effectiveness behind the design related to the prop and hub shape as well as the strength of the band holding the props down.   Also a quality balanced prop will help for not only performing better it also help the propeller hubs last longer since its not a fixed assembly.  With these know factors stated above Twisted Hobbys has focused over the years to create components that work directly with each other so there is no confusion or issues for our customers.  Depending on the motor’s kv and customers desired cell voltage they use will also effect propeller hub wear.  We recommend running HD Prop Band Kits when customers choose to run higher thrust setups like wise lower thrust models can use lite prop band savers.   Finding the right solution to save your prop used to be challenging though its been achieved over time with correct gear.  Twisted Hobbys has also created a Prop Band Installation Tool which greatly helps installation of the prop bands assembly as well as not damaging the models.  While we all want to have our cake and eat it too, there are some prop strikes that are just to hard and will still damage a prop with can be unfortunate.  One of the things Twisted Hobbys suggests for all pilots would be when you see your model going to have a prop strike its best to pull back on the throttle to save the prop as well as not create model damage.  For most all light prop strikes we have saved thousands of props from being damaged over the years.  This is one design we are thankful for and will continie to save many more props for years to come!  Enjoy your models and have fun!.  www.twistedhobbys.com
