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....
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...
