I Had tried them a few months ago and took a few weeks for a response via email, They were just really busy.

Also the lead time in a Hub and some blades was nearly 12 months.!!

Looks like there still going, There was updates on there FB account this month.

Other great options are Ramoser in Germany, They do Adjustable hubs and scale blades etc . Very Good Airfoils and loved in the EU

Or the Ultimate in Props is Mario Seidel, The Museum scale flying props suited specially to an engine of your choosing. But on the performance of that engine. Not Pitch adjustable but he can produce scale hubs an Spinner caps etc.

I've looked at the vario prop..the solo seems a bit more...user friendly...
thanks on the seidel link....he does nice work...
I'll wait on solo. Just wanted to make sure that if I ordered the hub and hardware I wasn't tossing money out the door.

Well, apparently Solo can't get blades...so they are in business in name only until they find a new blade manufacturer. Not sure why they couldn't maybe do a foam core carbon fiber layup...but ok.

I'll see if I can get vario prop to do business. I'm mainly wanting one of thse so I don't end up shelling out a grand in cash buying props to get that sweet spot in rpm...one prop, just change pitch.
