Now that the Hercules Propellers Flitzer is back flying we have been busy making a wood propeller for it.  Needless to say, we are going to town on this one.

We have opted for a symmetrical plan-form and have increased the diameter from 60" of the original prop to 65" for this new one.  The rear of the prop hub has a recess to accommodate the prop drive flange and the front of the hub is recessed for a flush aluminium crush-plate.
