Default RE: !/2 A APC props for pylon

I like the APC 5x3 and the Cox 5x3, the standard prop without the safety tips. A little harder to find these days. I've seen a couple of the ones with the safety tips throw blades. A nice DNU was torn up pretty bad in flight when that happened. The rubber ducky Cox prop seems much safer than the sharp, stiff APC unit but they both run well. The Cox prop bolts right up and the APC unit will need to be adapted to fit the shaft. No biggie, just something to consider. Wish my club would do an event like that but I'm the only member who flies 1/2A.
