Cabon Fiber Stunt Props

I've been making Carbon Fiber Props for more then 15 years now with over 100 different props. I have several Stunt Props, landing gear and a 4" bellcrank and I'm in the process of adding 16 new props.  Check out the attachment to see what I have and what I'm working on.

Steve...I bought some of your props from Burt Brokow when he was up here for the NW CL Regionals last Spring. I haven't had the chance to try them all, but did fly the 10 x 3.5 3 blade Tornado copy. I guess this would have been a finished prop, because the balance was almost perfect and it was pretty much plug n' play. I need to increase the pitch in it a bit, but you're props are nice stuff and prices are good. I hope to get some of the others tested by next Regionals, and I'll report my findings. I hope Burt brings more props (and CF LG's) next year. I didn't get to see a BC. It would be cool if you could post some information on the codes...like the T3-1 is the 3 blade I tried, and what's this T-11 for? Etc.!   Hoff Steve

Youse guys buy props from Steve Wilk!

We're always hearing about Social Security running out of money. How come we never hear about Welfare running out of money?

Which was more shocking to you? That there were 800,000 government non-essential employees being told to stay home because there was no money to pay them? Or that there were 800,000 non-essential government employees?

Hi Steve

Thanks for trying my props.  I currently working on a web page that will have all the info on each props along the prop orgines. I'm also make molds for several of the Rev-up props and hope to have those available next month.  I've attached a Pic of the Bellcrank.  The Bellcrank is made from one piece 12K tow, wrape around several times.  It has a 1/8" ID bronze pivot bushing with 3/32" ID brass lead out bushings.  The hole for the pushrod are left out so you can place them where you need them.  Dubro 1/16" ball links work best for a pushrod connector.

Thanks Steve

Hi Steve,

I am looking for some carbon fiber landing gear for profile models. I understand that you make or have these. Would you email me at: geraldschamp@comcast.net and let me know. Walter Hicks told me about these.

Thanks,
