Propeller, 14x8, 4-Blade: 1400mm F4U P-47
Review by Hifin on 2 Dec 2017review stating Propeller, 14x8, 4-Blade: 1400mm F4U P-47
Although this is the prop for the FMS F4U & P-47, I bought them to use on my 1400mm P-40B. Except for the different decals, these are identical to the P-40B props. I don't mind though. I get an extra prop in the deal.
My biggest complaint with these is the variability of weight. Some are 21.3g and some go up to 21.9g. That's why I only gave 3 stars on quality. I put my spinner on the balancer 1st to find the heavy side before putting the lightest prop there if I don't have matching weights on my props. Then balancing them doesn't require as much tape, grinding, etc.
These are tough, but you do want something other than the motor to break if you have a noseover. The spinner usually breaks 1st, then the prop, just as it should be.
