Ended up going or in my case investing in a 26.5" 13' scale Curtiss Electric propeller from Aero Tech [8D]

If you look at the detail and the blade proportions of the Aerotec prop versus some of the others you will see that you made the best choice.

The Hamilton blades and hub seem to be harder to come by in a ready fabricated package.

I use his 3 blade on my KI-84 and find it to be much closer to scale than some of the other offerings.

The biggest plus is that Wayne and crew do what they say and do not over promise and under deliver.
