A pair of very high quality VM 12 x 8 folding prop blades
, suitable for Vladimir's Models new Pro Spinners and other folding prop yokes and spinners.
These blades are extremely thin (they have a higher aspect ratio), thinner even than GM blades. This allows larger diameter blades to be fitted without pulling too much current. This increases the propulsive efficiency of the powertrain. When used with VM Pro Spinners they will fold closer to the fuselage, and cause less drag than other props.
Note this product consists of two carbon propeller blades only. The central spinner/yoke assembly is not included. Also it is common for prop blades to not fit all spinner/yokes perfectly as supplied. It is often necessary to reduce the width the blade root slightly to ensure free folding movement. Also the cut out in the spinner cone often needs to be increased to allow the blades to fully extend. The root of the blade should not touch the spinner cone when the prop is fully opened.
