Scary stuff with the Nylon props! I reckon I'll stay away. I like the look (and less sharpness) of wood props for bench running but the sizes are much more limited.Pat - You would be right but don't dismiss that info lightly. Have a look here Barton Model Flying Club :: View topic - Nylon Props - post 6 is from someone I have known for many years - a seasoned, very knowlegeable and highly experienced aeromodeller. The potential is there with these specific props - not necessarilly will but might - if it does then personal safety and that of the engine/model is of concern. I tend to work on the basis that if you don't use them the problem doesn't exist
BTW If you really want to see an engine working (maybe that should be hear!) at it's best try You Tube - 'tethered model car championships'
The tether car stuff is cool also. Perhaps i could hone my TIG-welding skills to make a tuned pipe one day
