i saw one that really work good but it's a gas hydro, for nitro engine it's rare, needs a torquey motor to make that prop works.

I had such a hard time myself looking for props and no one would tell me where to get the 3/4/5 blade guy's.. Ill spare you that today.


http://www.britnett.net/propshop/listings.html don't buy a scale prop, scroll down some until you see hydro prop.

I know a ABC S30 (4 blade) used to be very fast on my buddys .67 hydro, but the prop walk was killer. Had to switch to a 2 blade, and the problem went away. They just dont work well on nitro hydros.
