Hi All:
I am looking for some props maybe two or three blade that is 8 mm in diameter. Does anyone have any ideas? ??? the drive motor is from 16,000 to 34,000 RPM.

Thanks, Ed :D

toy boats sometimes have a sort of torpedo underneath.
these have props roughly that size. they typically have
three blades max.

trimming down is easy : just hold sandpaper or suchlike
against the turning prop. This worked OK for a 2 cm prop
I had to get down to 15 mm.

oh yes, I am talking plastic here...

Regards,
Ronald

Is this for the Typhoon torpedo? Why not make some? They are tiny.. So no need for great details on the blades. And the pitch must probably be very great because of the size.
