Dalprop FOLD F5 folding 5-inch propellers

Foldable propellers are nothing new. We use them on RC airplanes and consumer-ready drones like DJI Mavic for years. But they were never available for 5-inch mini quads! Until now that is, since just today I got a package from Foxeer with 2 (2 and a half) sets of brand new Dalprop FOLD 5.1″ folding propellers for multirotor FPV drones! Yay…

What to say… They fold indeed. My props are pre-production samples and came not assembled! Double the fun with some puzzles!

Unfortunately, I can not yet test them. It’s raining and the weather forecast says it will be raining for 2 more days. But after that, nothing will stop me from testing them on my favorite flying spot!

  1. I’m curious about how good these foldable props will be in real freestyle use. Hinged blades may appear more resilient against tree branches in some degree. However they may easy break off because of same reason. I will wait for real testing results. For next days bad weather is predicted in all Mid-Northern Europe, in our side – even snow.

  2. hmmm… looking forward to seeing how this plays out. i love the concept! we’re living in the future!!!
