The Lumenier POPO® Quick Swap MX2206-9 2450KV Motor is the first motor to incorporate the revolutionary Lumenier Quick Swap system. This motor has been designed to provide maximum power and thrust in a small and lightweight package. The MX motors use a more powerful stator in combination with N52SH magnets and very small air gap, resulting in incredible power and performance.

Designed to provide top power during drone racing and freestyle with a KV of 2450kv. The new POPO® Quick Swap MX2206 motors come in at 27.5g continuing Lumenier's tradition of creating some of the lightest racing motors on the market.

What is POPO®

POPO® ("Pop On, Pop Off") is a new propeller quick swap system from Lumenier 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 20 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 / prop so firmly while tightening a nut.

The POPO® system prevents prop slippage which is a common error for new pilots who accidentally forget to tighten their 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. Simply push on a standard prop and secure with a lock nut as normal. This enables drone pilots to continue to utilize their current props while migrating to a POPO® compatible motor or propeller. Likewise, POPO® compatible propellers can be used on regular motors without issue.  

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 new POPO® compatible motors. Additionally, leading propeller companies like HQ and Gemfan are already working on compatible propellers, which will be released in the near future.

"At a race, time is of the essence and being able to change props quickly is important. 
The POPO system helps racing pilots stay on task and out of the pits. "

Drone Pilot - Paul Nurkkala

How does it work?

POPO® implements an elegant push button quick release mechanism in the established 5mm prop shaft. Props that are compatible can use the mechanism as well as be mounted on non-POPO compatible motors, allowing pilots to easily mix and match. The system does not get in the way of mounting non-POPO compatible props, which are mounted with a conventional lock-nut and wrench, just like it works on any other motor today.

To mount a POPO® compatible prop, you place the prop onto the shaft, press the button, lower the prop onto the motor, release the button and then slowly turn the propeller while pushing the prop onto the motor.  Pilots hear an audible click when the button pops out, indicating its ready for flight.

POPO® Compatible Propellers

Lumenier has been selling POPO® compatible propellers for well over a year. The popular 5” Lumenier Butter Cutters and 5” and 6” Lumenier Gate Breaker props are already POPO® compatible. Lumenier is licensing the POPO® IP and specifications to many propeller manufacturers. Other manufacturers will be releasing their POPO® compatible propellers in the near future.

Industry Initiative

POPO® is an industry wide Initiative for innovative and safety minded manufacturers and enthusiasts. Motor and Propeller manufacturers interested in joining the POPO® Initiative can contact Lumenier at popo@lumenier.com.
