Leigh,

Thank you for the pictures.

I'm still looking into using something smarter than a potentiometer.

I already made that solution a long time ago, but a switch is nicer.

And much more complicated.

Cheers
Erik

I took a chance and bought a 62" wooden "Arrow" propeller.

If it's too noisy, then I'll buy a Ukrainian 3 bladed scimitar propeller.

Thank you for your help.

Cheers
Erik

Well, it looks like that propeller is stuck in the US forever.

To sum it up, the Warp Drive looks like the best buy for me.
Made by someone with a good reputation and who'll probably stay in business for years to come.
I'll contact the dealer Hoverhawk soonest (to get the ca. 10% discount).
Thank you for your help.

Cheers
Erik

A few days ago Scott wrote he discovered the propeller Darren sold me - is for a tractor 503!! I've been waiting a year and a half for a goddamn tractor propeller!!
But just today I picked up my nice, new 60" 3 bladed pusher Warp Drive - yeehaaa. Now I can tick that box also...

Cheers

I suspect you will find frustration and disappointment are a part of any aviation adventure Eric.

I am glad you got it resolved.

Thank you for sharing the fun with us Eric.
