I'm going to bolt the pulley mounts in place with tiny bolts if I can find them. that way I can remove them for maintenance. They will need to be mounted for three degrees of down thrust. I'll glue the propeller shafts in place at their mounts and at the propellers, so they won't be able to free wheel. I'll have to drill out the propellers to take the music wire shafts if I can't use the smaller music wire shafts...that depends on if I can get aluminum tubes which will fit the thin shafts in tightly. The 1/4" x 1" plastic/metal gears for the nose transfer system cost a small fortune - around $25. each. At that size they have 42 teeth.
