- 1. What kind of aircraft is the Snail suitable for?
When using same motor and ESC, the system is suitable for racing drones or small aerial imaging drones. Different flight experiences can be achieved using different Snail propellers.
- 2. How to choose Snail propellers and appropriate batteries?
The 5048S Tri-Blade propeller is suitable for medium to high-level drone racing. It has been extensively optimized for forward flight and in addition to larger thrust, it creates less drag and uses less power when flying forwards. These propellers can be replaced in seconds without tools, saving vital time in a competition and are best used with 4S batteries.
The 5048 Tri-Blade propeller is the same design and spec of the 5048S but a uses a standard hub that fits a range of motors.
The 5024S propeller is suitable for medium to high-level drone racing. It provides a smoother control experience and extended flight time. It is best used with 4S batteries
The 6030S propeller is suitable for entry-level drone racing, and significantly extends flight times. A 3S battery is recommended.
The 7027 propeller is suitable for compact aerial imaging and is efficient yet responsive. A 3S battery is recommended.
The 6048-3D propeller is suitable for 3D flight. A 3S battery is recommended.
- 3. How do I switch the ESC to Oneshot125 mode?
Set your flight controller to Oneshot125 mode and then restart the ESC. It will automatically detect the signal mode. The ESC will not switch its signal mode while powered on.
- 4. How can I switch the ESC to 3D flight mode?
Use the Snail ESC Programmer (available separately) and connect the ESC to your computer. Use DJI Assistant 2 (available from www.dji.com) to set your ESC to 3D flight mode.
- 5. Can I use a 4S LiPo battery with the 6030S, 7027S or 6048-3D propellers?
No, 4S LiPo battery induce a relatively high operating current. With 6030S, 7027S and 6048-3D propellers, the motor will overload, causing irreversible damages.
- 6. Is the Snail Propulsion System reliable?
The Snail Propulsion System been through extensive simulations and tests to enhance the strength of the Snail 2305 motor. Its Quick-Release propeller and hub structure have also been fully tested for strength. A range of protection systems are in place on the ESC, making the Snail Propulsion System lightweight but strong.
