Thanks.

Those are the stock spinners, painted silver.

They are of the sport variety. I have never used the thin ones.

from comparisons done on lots of past motor/prop combos, I can guarantee that the thin E APC style will kick butt on the Sport Style.

And they're available cheaply with CW/CCW

Just make sure to balance well

Ok, thanks. That explains why I could not find thin electric pusher props in that size.

The thin electric props are always more efficient on a electric motor. The thicker Sport props have to be thicker to withstand the pulse forces from an internal combustion engine but loose out in weight and efficiency.

Is this the real Sky Mule

I have been searching around for a picture of a full size plane that closely resembles the Sky Mule.

Here it is. The BN-2T Islander.

Here is a link to the picture.

Here are some more pictures:
