Lumenier Introduces New Line of Propellers for FPV Drone Racing

Posted by Betsy Lillian on June 14, 2016 No Comments

Lumenier, a Sarasota, Fla.-based designer and manufacturer of quadcopter products, has launched a new line of propellers geared toward first-person-view (FPV) drone racing.

The five different propellers, each available in six colors, are available initially through HobbyKing and GetFPV.

“Realizing there were only a few original prop designs for small multi-rotors and many clones of these same designs, we went out to engineer truly original, efficient and durable multi-rotor propellers,” says Tim Nilson, founder and owner of Lumenier. “Our new prop designs raise the bar of multi-rotor propeller engineering.”

“We are excited to partner with Lumenier to get these FPV racing products into the marketplace,” says HobbyKing’s Ben Everton, vice president of products and engineering.

Leveraging a proprietary algorithm, each prop has a unique airfoil and blade design. Lumenier is launching its propeller line with 4-inch and 5-inch props, including 5×3.5, 5×4.5, 5x4x3, 5x4x4 and 4x4x4. In the coming weeks, additional props will be released, including a 3x4x3 and 4x4x3.
