    Zor, I still believe in my definition about the cavitated air, so we can agree to disagree. My position is that a 2-blade, and even a 3-blade prop has the opportunity to move beyond the air...

    I've run 3-blade props and didn't notice much change in HP. I don't know where I'd get a 4-blade prop that I could fit to the .125. I've never flown a 4-blade, either... All I know is what I've...

    I stand corrected, Zor. It was the wing airfoil that was at 1.5 degrees. I was trying to visualize the drawing from memory. I should have checked the hard copy.
