Sasha,
Very nice build.
On the propellor, how did you lengthen the end to make that nice taper? Did you turn a cone first then add it?

Hi,

no that was my first try to turn a cone. The Problem is that the cone not fit very well and the tip runs out of center. So first I cut the old cone and solded a 10mm brass round and than I turned it. So you get a nice running prop.

regards
