But it dose come with 6 72" blades.I'll swap for a Ivo 62"mag. :D

Birdy, I knew you were bein a wise ass. :D However, I'll trade you a 60" 2 blade medium Ivo for it. Hmmm, I wonder what freight would cost???

Hey Chuck I need one also, maybe we could get Birdy to scare up another one and split shipping! :D
What hub do you have? the standard or HP?

Hey Scott, I have a like new hub that I got from Dirty Harry. It's made with plates on the front and back with spacers and blade holding cups in between. I can't use it because the nuts on the back interfere with my prerotator. Check and see if you can use that type. If you can, I'll check with Harry to see what he thinks about you becoming the new owner.

I have a different type of prerotator, The old prop hub was 2 plates with the blocks, but it is made for the arrow gearbox, What you are describing sounds like what I need for the rotax box. let me know. Thanks Buddy! :D

Chuck, I have a three blade Warp hub. It is the "two plates" version ( the aluminum two piece cast hub broke). It has a 6 hole pattern that fits my Hirth belt drive hub. You can try it if you wish. Just let me know and I will ship it. If you want to keep it you can send $50 + shipping later. Port Orchard, Seattle WA
Need a picture?

That is a very generous offer, and I really appreciate it. However, I must have the kind that broke for you in order to clear my prerotator pulleys.
You guys up there in the Great North-West are just super nice. Thank you so much for the offer. :)

If you and Birdy both shipped your props to each other the same day from opposite directions, perhaps the shipping charges would cancel out. Worth a try!
Now about losing altitude turning downwind...

I think I might know someone that has what you need. I will try and get a picture.And a price. Have any idea what you are willing to give for it so I can give the guy an idea?? I looked them up on the Warp drive web site the HPL hub goes "NEW" for $200 WOW!!!!
And does the middle man get a cut?? :p

Russ, I went ahead and ordered one yesterday from WD. If he'd let it go cheap, I'd buy it as a spare, providing it's true (no blade strikes, etc...) Thanx a lot Russ.

Chuck I will not be getting around to the hub in the next few days as we are getting ready for Charlie. It is forcasted to run just about over my house. But I will be at work for the next day or two.

Thank you, Russ. I'm in no hurry. I hope you fair the storm well.
