F1D Propeller Construction

Now that Hope and Josh have recovered from the F1D World Championship, we are going to start uploading footage from various flying activities again. In the meantime, here are some propeller building videos we meant to upload back in February.

First up is how to double taper balsa spars. I use this technique for all of my propeller spars from ministick all the way up to unlimited:

Next up, how to build F1D propellers. This is a question we have received over and over, probably second only to how to cover indoor models. This is not the technique most indoor fliers use, and you may find that you do not like it. As they say, your mileage may vary.

We hope to begin uploading footage from Slanic very soon. Stay tuned as the updates begin. Josh’s phone has a couple hundred video clips from the past 6 months of flying and it all needs to be sorted out.
