Default Well, that's about the ugliest prop..

... I ever saw.

After hunting to no avail locally for Zinger 11-10's, I stumbled on a 13-10 at one of my LHS's. I figure there's enough blade cross section that it ought to hold up as a break-in prop for my .65's. I've trimmed it to 8-3/8" and balanced vewwy carefully. Time to fire these things up! I'll vid the first run, or at least the first run I want anyone to see that is. Just gotta fit a remote NV to the test stand and off we go.

I guess the motto "Why bother shaping fancy tips when you don't give a crap" works for them too.

So far my PSP test stand has held a pulsejet and a turbine. Now to test it with a reciprocating engine, I imagine it works for those too... Nice unit, I'm real glad I sucked it up and spent the money for it in the end.

Going to fire it up today, and will video the attempt. Got it all mounted up on the test stand with pipe etc. last night. Dropped in one head shim as I use 15% for pretty much everything except small engines, noticed it already had one installed out of the box.
