We started out with the Gaui 330x-s and even after we upgraded our birds, we stuck with the Gaui props because we like them so much. However, we've had some mysterious crashes and unexplained failures...

Then, over this past weekend we seemed to get confirmation that what's happening is that the powerful new motors are literally tearing the blades off of the Gaui props. Here is a link to a post on our website with all the details:

Has anyone else had this experience or, with this in mind, do you have a new theory about a crash you previously couldn't explain?

BTW... We never had any problems with the Gaui props when we were flying a stock Gaui 330x-s, so I still think they're great for what they are intended to do. Just be careful if you upgrade to bigger motors and a heavier bird...
