I can't imagine. Especially when the haters thought it was an April fools joke. I bet you just wanted to come out with it right then. Everything has been handled very profesionally, and I commend you for that. Now get me some 23X8 props.

Just sub'd with my E-mail. Look forward to trying one! I've never been a fan of the thrust numbers on a Mej., but I do like carbon props.

I will be first in line for a 100cc prop. My DA-100 just told me to order one. You guys have motors that talk to you too, right?

BTW. I love the haters comments. I think they are pissy because they did not think of it. Ha ha. Especially the "Aerodynamics" guys who are telling everybody that this is all "impossible", "cant be done", etc....

Got to get cracking on the full scale so that someone doesn't shoot these down in IMAC for being outside the 10% rule. They sure don't look like anything anyone has seen before.

Reminds me of the props I saw on a plane I flew in a few weeks ago, ATR-72.

Very close, the the new props are forward swept. This forward and rearward swept stuff has got me curious.

Even though they're rear swept they were wild looking!

We have seen a few pictures and anecdotal comments....

The "Aerodynamicists" would say there is a lot of Kool Aid Drinking going on!

(I don't personally disbelieve the prop could be a performer... but I haven't seen any real data yet... and after there are a few hundred of'em out there with a lot of experienced pilots trying'em out... THEN I will be better able to make a judgement)

I think the point of the fwd sweep is to get the tips into "Cleaner Air" .. to promote spanwise flow towards the hub rather then towards the tip...... I think.... not exactly sure myself what that does...
