Whether you break down your machine before every flight, or you just hate having to torque down your prop bolts every time, this Quick-Release Hub is for you. It is compatible with all standard propellers and lets you install or remove the prop in under 30 seconds. Most importantly it keeps it securely locked to the engine. Unlike other similar products, our Quick-Release is very light only (adding only 90-160 grams depending on your prop), it has a real locking mechanism and doesn’t require any tools to operate. More importantly they look great and use high quality materials.
We always appreciate customer input. You asked, we listened and took the most common suggestions and turned them into a set of comprehensive updates to make our most popular prop hubs even better.
- The pins are now captive and pressed in from the back
- New low profile threaded insert allows us to use a lock nut to hold the lever in place and is compatible with all props universally
- Lever operation has been further improved allowing a smoother locking/unlocking action which further increases clamping pressure
Additionally, the Atom 80 model now features grooves to facilitate gearbox venting. Although the old model was not sealed to the reduction hub and the vent can still function as normal, this was a feature that was requested by several people and there was no good reason not to implement it.
The cam lever mechanism takes advantage of centrifugal forces from the spinning propeller to keep it in the locked position making it impossible to release during flight. The lever is machined from billet aluminum with a nylon base (same stuff used in lock nuts) which makes it a very strong and lightweight product which also looks great. The lever is counter-balanced by a weight to cancel any vibrations.
Premium Materials and Lightweight Construction
The hub features an anodized CNC machined aluminum body and lever, stainless steel pins, real 100% carbon fiber prop plate and a Nylon cam-locking mechanism base. No shortcuts are taken in the manufacturing of this product and with the exception of the carbon fiber prop plates, it’s 100% produced and finished in-house in the USA. It comes backed by a one year warranty.
