best folding prop?
While Gori makes a 3-blade folder, the technical requirements of any folding prop are the oposite of what a good prop should be.
Prop designers say lowest tip mass and thinnest section are goals, but a folder relies on the centrifical mass (weight) at the tips to open the folder.
I can''t say enough good things about the three-blade feathering prop we got for our N41. About $1,250, thin composite blades and a big performance gain.
