Building Tip of the Week: Drilling the Propeller with a Drill JIG

Posted by aerobeez On December - 18 - 2014

Hey pilots, welcome back for another installment of Pete’s Tip of the Week! Only one more week until Christmas! New toys, gifts, and hopefully new planes for all those pilots out there, and that means more new builds. Today’s tip will be dealing with the propeller and will hopefully help give you the extra edge with that next build! Even if you don’t own an Aerobeez plane or have yet to take the first step into becoming an RC pilot, we want to help you improve your model building, set-up, and eventually flying skills.

So without further ado, today’s tip will focus on: Drilling the Propeller with a Drill JIG

Drilling a propeller can be done different ways, but using a nice drill jig will help get the best results. When using a propeller drill jig, always use a wood or foam block on the other side sitting on a flat surface.  Once you drill one hole, use the actual propeller bolt and insert it into the one hole drilled.  This will hold the jig in place to prevent misalignment when drilling the remaining holes.


Thank you as always for reading Pete’s Tip of the Week and check back for more each week!
