    Re: Doozit's 3rd. 10'6 deckover

    Thank you for that. I'll post pics of the tear down of these engines as I go along. From what I can tell the 084 with a reduction drive spins the same prop an a-65 runs so should be nice. Just...

    Re: Let's talk props, two or three blades

    Hmm this is a tricky subject as there many different ways of answering. I would say more blades for more push but at the same time a wide blade may push better. I've heard a short multi blade will...
