site on propeller theory, with answers to such questions as
"how do I design a propeller for my particular engine and
airframe ? " then you're in the wrong place!!
However, if you
just want to muddle through like the rest of us, then you
may enjoy some of the articles included on this site.
You will also find
my pricelist (both for general products
and for propellers).
This is compulsive reading, so you may want to go straight
there. Of the hits on this website, 50% go to the pricelist,
and about 15% go to the technical articles, so I guess a lot
of telephone-book readers get to this site.
So who is Supercool
Racing Propellers.......? Well I'm Joe Supercool (aka Stuart
Sherlock). My daughters think I'm a bit weird, ever since
I chucked in my job as a nuclear physicist in favour of making
propellers for model aeroplanes. I never really understood
nuclear physics, and when my research institution was corporatised
and downsized, my hobby became a more attractive area on which
to spend my life force.
Essential reading for model aircraft contest fliers.
This is the only book on the market explaining
propeller theory in non-mathematical terms. A
rattling good read, I know, I wrote it.
And I have to tell you, propellers
can really get you in. They really are a beautiful item, complex
and simple at the same time!
fastest prop-jet airplane ever.
propellers are fabricated in composite materials, mainly carbon
fibre and epoxy resin. The moulds are CNC machined from solid
billets of aluminium, giving the propellers great fidelity
to the design algorithms
may choose from my existing line of propellers, or request
custom designed props for your own application. I have a policy
of total customer satisfaction. If you are not satisfied with
my product, get back to me and let me know the problem. You
would be amazed how many people are reluctant to do this!
But remember, its your money, and its hard come by.
So welcome aboard, and I hope you enjoy the content of this
