Bob,
Who makes that similar prop? It's too bad apc didn't bring that prop back. Right now I'm using the goofy looking apc carbon prop with the thin hub. Can't tell ya the size cuz I don't have it in front of me right now.I'm thinking it's less pitch than 8.1?? I saw some in a gerage sale on rcu but I guess he isn't interested in splitting the lot of props.

Smoken, Have you run up the 9x10 yet?

I comissioned the mold from Steve Wilk and he makes them for me.
He does very nice, well proven work.

Bob, i haven't run my 9x10's either, they are just stored with my OPS's, Jetts and K&B ducted fans. I was so hoping to have been able to acquire a Speed Cobra or 2.....

Have you guys noticed anyone building
A diamond dust with a ducted fan down the
Middle of the fuse? If so, please point me to the forum.

Thanx,
Nick
