Dalprop Nepal N1 5″ propellers

This weekend, thanks to Foxeer, I had an opportunity to test flight new Dalprop freestyle props: Nepal N1. Although the name is a puzzle for me, I’m pretty sure Dalprop Nepal N1 might make some stirr!

Anyhow, Nepal series is intended for freestyle although I’m pretty sure you can do some relaxed, non-competitive FPV racing with them as well.

The most visible feature of Nepal N1 is that they have heavily swept-back blades. The resemblance to Azure Power propellers is obvious, but they are far from being identical. Blade shape and curvature are different.

After flying a few LiPo packs with those propellers, all I can say is that I like for they perform and for sure will use them a lot.

  • The prop wash is very gentle and easy to tune out. The marketing slogan for Nepal N1 is “No prop wash” but it’s only a slogan. Prop wash is there, but it’s not big and simple to avoid
  • Yaw is responsive but not over-responsive like some heavy pitched props
  • They seem like a nice compromise between very gentle and power lacking props like Ethix S3 and the previous generation of Dalprop propellers know as Cyclone.
  • Nepal N1 feel very precise in flight and I was kind of surprised how easily I was able to navigate between trees and fit into small holes
  • I have no idea what exactly they used to make Nepal N1, but they are bloody tough props! After a few at least moderate crashes, there is still not a single scratch on them and I did not have to replace even a single propeller. All are straight and you can see some evidence of being in use only after a close examination. Very durable indeed
  • Powerlooping is easy again as they do not lack power at the high end and I had no problems to travel back far enough to have enough time and space to hit the gate again. Very nice!
