Does anyone have a suggestion to reduce the noise of the Solo? I was able to replace the blades on my DJI with stiffer blades and it seemed to reduce the noise factor.
Sorry, nobody's tried to my knowledge. I don't think it would be worth the effort because Solo's noise comes from motors turning at high speed.No they don't help, or no it hasn't been tried?
It would be nice to hear the comparison before and after.Here is a clip from almost a year ago when I did the T-motor swap and run the APC 11x4.5 props. There was a noticeable drop in noise with this combo.
Thanks Frank- good point but I think the motor sound will change when put under the load of flying. How much- who knows?Just my opinion. The props make the noise. Run the Solo up with no props, if the motors make anything than a nice hummmmmm, you've probably got some bad bearings. I had 1 new Solo motor that was squealing, almost like out of sync with the ESC. Put a drop of WD40 on the shaft, and it's whisper quiet. I plan on buying some Tri-Flo soon.
APC 11" props, not only lower dB's but a less annoying tone.
Hi there, I don't want to be rude, but the video shows quite annoying tone Probably in reality they sound better.
I have missed to note that actually you talk about 11" props. The stock props are 10x4.5. Comparing this size with APC I can see some difference, but honestly not much. Comparing them to Master Airscrew 10x4.5, I definitely see improvement of almost everything (agility, battery life and noise).
I have never tried 11" props on my Solo as I'm afraid that they will be "heavy" for the motors and I will lose some agility.
