Good source for replacement folding prop

Found these today while browsing. Haven't seen this shop listed in this thread yet.

Prop:

Spinner/yoke:

I had no reason to check if in stock, but there were no out-of-stock flags posted.

There are different size EZ connectors. You want the one for the small diameter control rod. (silver in color, not gold)

C of G mod

Hi,
I received my radian 2 days ago and when it came to measuring the c of g with the stock battery I found that with the battery placed in it's well I was very tail heavy. I don't know what modification they have done to the Radian for this to be the case (maybe lighter motor?).
To get the c of g correct I had to place the battery just in front of the plastic Velcro support of the battery. To do this I placed an elastic band around the Velcro holder of the regulator and tied the two ends with some string (to avoid having to re thread the elastic after I take the battery out). I also glued in a piece of ply wood just in front of the plastic Velcro support of the battery to act as a backplate for the battery to sit against. All I have to do is thread the battery Velcro around the elastic band and tighten accordingly. Now my battery is secure in a more forward position allowing me to have the correct c of g.
It is still a mystery why the newer Radians with the stock battery are tail heavy when placing the battery in the designated battery well.
happy flying
Hank.

That ballance situation does seem strange. Mine was perfect with no modifications at all.

I put the h-stab on, the wings, added the battery and did a hand toss and it floated off my hand lust like my high end contest planes. No CG adjustments requred at all.

After you have flown it, try moving the battery back to its original position. You may find the CG is fine. Perhaps you miss measured.

Negative i have not done the magnet mod?
I measured the c of g at 63mm and with the battery forward as described in my previouse post the plane's c of g is spot on .The dive test is spot on too.
Yes i am lucky to live in a beautifull part of the world, the only down side is that i Hang glide and fly rc gliders on my own. To find company in both activities i have to drive at least 1 hour in the car.
Everything i learnt regarding rc was on the internet and with Aerofly pro sim.

Carrying case?

So I tried searching this thread but no luck. I just got my Radian and was wondering what you guys use if anything to get your bird and radio to the field. I was a heli guy and I had case that carried everything.
Thanks
