    I was once told that for ''optimum'' performance and efficiency, a 5 blade is the best.

    Any comments?

    Mr.Ron,
    i tried your 4 bladed prop out on the yellow cat.had very poor results.cavitation was uncontrollable.so,i went to a prather280,problem solved.i would like to use this prop.i will be sending you a custom prop once i figure out what i need on my new project,as i have discussed this before.we are in the middle of winter here,very hard water,frozen lake.Sunday i did get to run the yellow cat hull.as our temp was in the 40s-60s the last couple days.this morning i am going to get a chance to run again,65+ and cloudy.once i have what i need i will be talking more about what i need.
    as for the first outing with the big cat,she was a blast to run.i sat this boat in at the ramp at my marina.putted out to the end of the pier and just tried to get used to this powerhouse quickdraw motor.i had to make many changes to the strut angle and prop height.then as fast as the weather was nice ,blam 30-35 mph winds.cr--,ended my day quickly.i am going out again this morning for round two.try different props and some other tricks up my sleeve.

    Default 3.0 Four Blade or 2.8

    Was the four blade the same size as the Prather? I may have relieved the four blades more for higher RPM motors...Might need to open the leading edges up some...Use a Cresent wrench or Vise Grips...Just get one a head of the other and it should plane off OK....

    Keep testing...

    as soon as my other project gets going i will need to discuss with you the special props that we talked about a while back.this is still in the r&d processes.i have a prop that might work,but the weather isn't being nice to us here on the east coast.either to cold or to high of winds.I HATE WINTER TIME..

    Ron,

    I own Props-4-U a R/C propeller shop here in Traverse City, Michigan.

    I do aprox. 1000+ propellers a year for model boaters.

    I am getting into bigger hydro propellers with a new interest in real boats.

    I sure enjoy your forum.

    Default Ron Hill Here!

    Contact me at Ronhill@hillmarine.com , I might have some props you could sell. Hill MArine and Signature Propellers have quite a few people who buy props from us and re sell them.

    Default The Trouble With Selling RC Props

    Quote Originally Posted by skeg View Post

    I'm pretty recognized as the Propeller King on E-Bay. I sell a ton of propellers there, every year and have for more than 15 years, now. But selling RC props, at $75 each takes as much energy as selling a $427 Propeller. Most people that buy from me on E-bay ask me a question or two. I'm a "one man band". So, I answer all emails myself. My son, who likes 700 prop orders, doesn't do E-Bay.

    Most all my E-Bay propellers now have part numbers, so, one of these days, when I "Drop Dead" Hill Marine can still sell my props.



    A $75 dollar props has $90 worth of finishing time in it. I loved the RC props, but, time wise, it didn't work.
