POPO® ("Pop On, Pop Off") is a new propeller quick swap system that enables mounting props to brushless drone motors in seconds with the push of a button.
POPO® eliminates the need for a prop nut and wrench to attach propellers to motors. A full set of 4 props can be removed and replaced in about 25 seconds without tools. This provides convenience in the field, as well as speed and simplicity under race day pressure.
The ability to quickly remove and reattach a full set of props is a key safety feature for drone enthusiast that are frequently repairing and tuning their drones. POPO® prevents cuts from sharp propeller blades since there is no longer a need to hold the motor tightly while tightening a nut.
The POPO® system prevents prop slippage which is a common error for new pilots who accidently don’t tighten lock nuts enough. The system fastens props into place with an audible click. No guesswork on tightening the lock nut.
Importantly, POPO® is also fully backwards compatible and supports any existing propellers on the market today. This enables drone pilots to continue to utilize their current props while migrating to a POPO® compatible motor. Likewise, POPO® compatible propellers can be used on regular motors.
POPO® is an industry initiative and compatible motors and propellers will soon be available from the world's top brands. Manufacturers such as T-Motor, Emax, Lumenier and more will soon offer POPO® compatible motors.
Likewise, leading propeller companies like HQ and Gemfan are already working on compatible propellers, which will be released over the coming weeks.
