Great engine break-in prop.
Review by Ex G. on 26 Jul 2018review stating Great engine break-in prop.
Used the prop to break-in my new OS 0.46 engine. Unfortunately, after the break-in of the engine, I wanted to see how long the engine would run on 8 ounces of fuel, at half throttle. The engine seemed to be loading up, so in a lapse of judgement, I reached for the needle valve to lean the engine up a little bit. The problem is I reached straight through the prop which was turning at about 5 or 6 thousand RPM. In a fight with a spinning prop, the prop is always going to win, which it did. Luckly I didn't loose any digits, but my doctor said that I would be loosing the nails on my index and middle fingers. SO, BE CAREFUL AROUND A RUNNING ENGINE. PS. Nothing wrong with the prop I bought to break in the engine. The next engine I buy, I'll be buying this prop again.
