    VooDoo props are awesome, but they are more for gas boats. Not sure what you are trying to do Bill. I am not sure if they will be able to spin on electrics.

    Its a big 6-10s 1/8th scale..
    I likely need ones on their smaller end.

    Any more suggestions?

    The big ABC's are hard to beat if you want to do the prep work.

    Oh good. I'm sure ABC has a wide assortment.
    The app is for sport, so I won't have to do much more than clean up and balance them.

    Thanks! any other suggestions in perhaps aluminum?

    Bill, if you get a hold of VooDoo, they will trim down the aluminum for you for any size.

    Bill.
    Have you thought about using a 1/4" shaft with the stepdown stub to 3/16" for a greater range of props. That's what I've done with my 1/8 scale hydro. It was cheaper than buying a new set of 1/4" props to test.

    Raptor, you probably know the most about props in model boating, so for my personal boat I'll Definitely take your advice.

    That link is after I narrowed down the prop category by searching .250
    As far as I can tell, the ".250" designation refers to 1/4" shaft, as there were several others with the ".187" designation, apparently referring to 3/16".

    Hello Bill
    Please check this one too:
    http://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/rg_boat_ra...&_trksid=p3686
    For the moment, only a very small assortment of products are listed on Ebay.
    Rod is a friend of mine and has a lot of quality stuff for Scale & IC. He is a producer not only a seller.
    I have asked him about your 1/4" bore prop and he said that it is possible.
    But you need to provide more details: brass or alu, what size, how many blades,etc.
    He is located in UK but starting next week will start shipping worldwide.You can drop him an email to ask more details.
    Regards
