It looks like I wont have to experiment and make my own
After a little search I found this

Folding propeller design which rotates 'around' the boom, for FPV and UAV R/C planes (5 min 7 sec)


'Boom-prop' design for UAV and R/C planes takes to the sky! (2 min 11 sec)


The Boomcopter: It's not quite what you think... (2 min 53 sec)

Ian designed it some time ago but he didn't protect it, a company in China has released an FPV plane with a similar setup
I need to make mine a little different but will get in touch with Ian and give him the credit
There are a few full size variations going back some time but as far as I can find out Ians is the first rc model with this setup
