In keeping with Air Riders philosophy of continuous improvement, we have upgraded our propulsion system to include the Kool Variable Pitch Propeller. Starting late 2017 all crafts will now have this propeller installed on them.
With this propeller installed, the performance of the AR-45 is greatly improved. There is a considerable improvement in the thrust generated, making the craft faster and able to handle the windy days with ease. The stopping distance has also been greatly reduced using either the spin around method or by using the reverse pitch capabilities of our crafts. Steering is also very responsive now making it a dream to drive.
KOOLprop blades are designed using computer technologies, then tested in a wind tunnel, in flight and pass special destructive tests. The KOOL VPP is made from carbon fiber + fiberglass composite and is finished with a very durable epoxy gelcoat, which resists scratching. This prop has an integrated strong leading protection made of ultra high-density polyurethane. With these features combined, the prop is ideally protected against water splashes, tall grass, dirt, tiny rocks ect. The hub is made from an aluminum alloy and is CNC machined then anodized. There is also a manufacturers warranty against defects of 500 hours or 2 years and have a life expectancy of 1000+ hours.
