How to make your own propeller.


More pictures from Indonesia

I know I’ve posted a couple of these before but this collection has some details on the construction. I like the DIY propeller construction. I really should look at that for Squirrels or other models.

I also noticed the close-ups didn’t have a wing shim. So either they added it, the sticks were curved or there is some negative pitch on the tailplane.


DIY Propeller

Here’s a DIY propeller from Dinkar in India.

Here are the last night pictures of making a propeller. The raw materials that I have used are-two wooden spoons 5cm
each), empty ball-pen refill, metal wire, thread, fevicol & fevikwick etc.  This time one of my friends Vasant who is also primary teacher, working in same district where am I, came and joined me. He is on holidays now living at Nanded i.e. nearly 100 km away from my town. But specially he visit me to take squirrel kit for his students. He will send me some pictures of his activities.   Take care. –Dinkar
