Carbon Fiber Prop (edge protection)

Recommended Posts

I fly quit a bit. I bought a 130 carbon fiber prop for the miniplane last year. I love the prop it has just enough thrust (really don't need any more).

However I'm getting a little worried its starting to disintegrate. The main edge is really starting to disappear.

Before it gets really bad is there some coating I can put on this to stop/slow the process down?

It is a thin prop compared to others I've seen but its works really well.

plastic, 3M Paint Protection Film was initially designed to protect helicopter blades from debris during the Vietnam War.

$7 looks good too.

I like this option better then paint

I would like to think its something in the air here too but I'm starting to think its could be the marathon feet drags I've been doing down the beaches lol I think sunday I did a 200-300 meter drag :mrgreen:

Just might have something to do with it.........
