2-blade Flexofold Problems
This winter i switched my propeller to a Flexofold 2-blade folding prop.
After getting the boat in the water the propeller problem started rather fast.
The 2-blade Flexofold won't unfold in reverse. I checked the gear, and it's sett that the propeller is the problem. I have dived on the propeller and there is no problems with the blades themselvs. They are lose as they should be and the propeller housing is thight to the shaft. I am realy disapointed in Flexofold as I have tried to send them several e-mails without respons. I wounder if anyone else have had a similar problem or have some ideas? I still have my old Eliche R. 2-blader prop. So I am woundering to change back to the old one.
Here are a video of the proplem, at first you could see how the boat reacts when reverse is enabled in a docking situation and then my "dive" on the Flexofold.
