- 12/27/2016

FPV Drone Racing and Freestyle flying require high quality propellers that ensure optimal thrust, efficiency and top-end speed to allow pilots to consistently perform at their best.


"Realizing there were only a few original prop designs for small multi-rotors and many clones of these same designs, we went out to engineer truly original, efficient, and durable multi-rotor propellers,” says Tim Nilson, Founder and Owner of Lumenier. “Our new prop designs raise the bar of multi-rotor propeller engineering."

Lumenier announced 5 different propellers, each in 6 colors, available initially through HobbyKing and GetFPV. “We are excited to partner with Lumenier to get these FPV Racing products into the marketplace.” said HobbyKing’s Ben Everton, VP Products and Engineering. “Lumenier is known for making high quality gear and HobbyKing’s customers rely on us to offer a variety of reliable, premier brands.”
