Default WHERE TO GET CARBON FIBER PROPS

Go to clspeed.com, click on parts finder, and then go to the bottom of the page, and you will find ZZ PROP,s by Mike Hazel. Ask about props for D speed. I am currently running a 8-11 on my modified DD and its the fastest its ever flown. I will post a video soon. Don't buy a prop from John Newton, because his are very rough and unfinished. I went to a control line speed contest in Napa,CA and they said that Mike makes good props so I tried one, and man that is one bad ass prop. There is'nt much thrust a low speed, but once it gets going it just keeps going faster, and faster! BTW these props cost $15-20.00 each. Regards, Scott.

I don't think you'll find any other prop mfg's that have that steep a pitch in that diameter. I like what you did, can't get the high rev's, than go with more pitch.
What engine are you running?

I am running a modified Jett 60 FIRE. If you go to my post-MODIFIED DIAMOND DUST there is a full description of what I did to the engine. I set the pipe length for 20,000 rpm, and then run as much pitch as I can and still get on the pipe. I will post a video soon. Regards, Scott.
