    No worries, I was just clearing up a common confusion I often see throughout this forum.

    Have you tested the MAS props for Solo? I just got mine but can't compare on the T-motors

    If i did the mod to mine, i would swing Aeronaut props. I dont rate APC and the tmotor though of excellent build quality are in a stupid 3.3 pitch.

    If the diy pod gets off the ground id use tbs 900kv v2s and the Aeronauts

    not sure why you would need the pods for that.
    I run the 900jv v2 and APC props now
    they work fine with solo stock and APC props

    Can you use the stock props with these motors?

    those are the ones, basically 40 bucks a motor and you get prop adapters thrown in

    The stock props requires a 6mm threaded PA. The main conversation here has been to maintain compatibility with stock props. Even though this is a multi-page discussion, all the questions you've asked are answered within the thread. The read time is not huge if you filter most postings that are unrelated.
    880KV Here is the link to Roland's test results for the various motor/prop combo - Motors Swapped to T-Motor 2216-12 800kV And again, the first 10-15 pages are worth reading, as many replied with their results or additional questions.

    What are you doing that would require so many props? I haven't broke a set since I got my Solo in May 2015. This statement was interesting: "i got 40 props left hoping by the time i run out "

    $3.99 for a set i just stock up on spares. Just like my 2 uav and 3 gimbals and 6 batteries.

    Any time you crash, you're guaranteed to lose at least 2. In my first month of owning it i had a couple of landing and manual landing practices go wrong. probably went through 8.

    Yet another amazing "horn of plenty" on this forum. I've studied the entire thread in pure admiration of the amazing skills demonstrated by especially @RolandS888 and @RichWest (and the rest of you!). Found 10 pcs T-Motor 2216 800kV V2 at RCflight.se and ordered - all 10 :rolleyes: at $36.50 a piece...:D I'll supply those with the short PA's (CCW and CW) from TBS. As I've understood those fit the motors snugly, and support the stock props. Right?

    What I still wonder about: Have anyone figured out a replacement ESC for the Solo? Any thread I've missed?

    (Greetings from Norway....:))

    He probably wouldn't want to use what I did...Hobbywing XRotor Pro 80a. But no reason you couldn't use another ESC. But you would lose the LED controls which is built into the Solo units.

    Some of us with less than steady hands could benefit from finding someone for hire willing and able to do the soldering. I have the motors and extra pods but not the courage yet to tackle the fine work required! I view pods as too precious to butcher.
