F4U Corsair: The 2, 3 & 4-Blade VarioPROP

I am going to utilize the Ramoser 3-Blade VarioPROP with the Corsair.

With the VarioPROP the options are open to what combination will work best with the SK 580. In these pics I am showing the 15" scale blades and the recommended 13" scale blades.

I will also be able to install a 4-Blade hub, and have the option of running 4 x 13's, or go to a 2-Blade set-up, and experiment with 2 x 13", or 2 x 14" speed blades, or even 2 of the 15" blades?

My plans are to run a 5S lipo with this set-up, and as soon as it arrives I will post performance specs. respectively.

UP-DATE 12/07/2010: I thought I would preview additional options the VarioPROP offers for the Corsair. In addition to the 3-Blade set-up, I can also install the 4-Blade hub, and experiment with either the 13" & 15" Scale blades, or the 14" Speed blades which I will probably use in a 2-Blade configuration?

Sorry, I hadn't noticed I didn't put a link in for the VarioProp. The manufacture is Ramoser, and the US dealer is e-flightline.
