will a 12" prop from a 50 blueband do? It's OK but I'm never going to use it...

You can use them to make test props with for tuning an engine in a tank.That and they are cheaper to fix than buying a new one-and look like new when repaired.

I have other Idea's for it, but can't go into details at the mo. A bent blade would be cool or a big chunk out of one of the blades. I am looking for a freebee though as I'm a tight git.


Nos4r2 that'll be great....Is it damaged? Be a shame to deliberatly damage a perfectly useable prop though.
I do however need one pretty urgently.

There's nothing wrong with it....if someone else has one then....? If you're really desperate it's there though
