I personally went from highly interested...tired of waiting...to downright skeptical now.
i will have video up this weekend, i worked on it last night, just curious do you think
A. there are issues with the props and we are hiding it or
B. we both work fulltime jobs (i actually work numerous weekends also) have no employees and are launching two businesses and manufacturing of carbon fiber is a very slow process.

not sure how many businesses you have launched but it is more time consuming than you think....

Yep... been there. There are so many things behind the scenes that need to be managed, and only you to do it. Good luck, looking forward to some good flight reports very soon.

No, I don't think there are issues, known or otherwise, as of yet.
That remains to be proven by many different engines, airframes, flying styles, etc.

Completely understand the full time job thing and not having much time. I'm going on three months now since I've recieved my 42% Raven and its still not completed.

Simple fact is, we want to see video.
You can post a teaser
it doesn't have to be studio quality

Every new movie releases several teaser trailers prior to the main set...so come on...quit being a cock tease and post a snipit of a plane running on the ground with full THX, DOLBY, THX, DTS, SDS sound!

I hope that my post didn't come off negative, because that was not my intent. I was just trying to help! You will likely have a lot of companies trying to copy you with the performance you stated.
Anyway, are you going to Toledo? I would be cool to see this prop in person.

We won't be there but OMP will have our props on one of their display aircrafts..

...not trying to be a skeptic here, cuz i still wanna get my hands on one of these babies (as soon as you make one for a 30cc! )
but it wouldve been a very good idea to show the prop on the plane before or at least after the flight without the engine running...your video just looks like a normal prop. maybe make the next one showing someone starting the plane, and then show the engine cutting off after the flight. u know what i mean?

best of luck with your business- still the coolest thing ive seen for a long time!

Really?

Now you are questioning my integrity?

The prop exists, sorry we were limited on time as the weather here has been really crappy so far this year.

Geesh.......

Man, If I were the manufacturer of this prop I would be using this thread to make a list of all the D-bags that I would never sell a prop too.

If you clicked on the link to watch the video, and then browsed the site [at all] where you found that video, you would have seen a static picture of the aircraft flown with the prop on it...look again. There was also an article here on FG (can't find it now, but I don't often search for previous features) where Jim reviewed the prop and I believe it also had a picture (static) of the aircraft with the prop on it. In any case, POST #1 in this thread has a static picture of the plane Jim flew with the prop on it....POST #2 has 3 more static pics of the same plane with the prop installed.

I saw the prop in "person" recently at a local RC swap meet and the pics do not do it justice...this thing is wicked looking! Good luck to the developer[s] in marketing this great innovation in prop technology.
