    Pay particular attention to images 48 and 49. You'll make more overall gains in performance by paying attention to the blade cross section shape and trailing edge detail.

    Just my .02, what do I know.

    Starting out with a good quality thin casting helps lots. I have seen some new props that look near impossible to thin and sharpen. The Octura m445 is usually a good thin casting to work with.

    Thanks Steven, great reading.
    Now a comment. Most of the information is unfortunately over my head. One thing that I gleaned from all of the info is that maybe a larger diameter, lower pitch may be a better selection on my leopard 1490kv, 4092. The current setup only turns 28,000 on 6s while unloaded rpm calculates to 38,000. In my mind, :) this means that the motor is working too hard and unable to make rev's.
    Your comments on my theory are VERY welcome, as I said the info is basically over my head.
    Thanks in advance.

    3.7 volts per cell loaded for racing works for me.
