first of all, I would like to apologize for any severe technical
misunderstanding rising from my question. We shrinks misunderstand all the
time, so we are acustomed with people complaining about this.

The question is:
Which is the problem, if any, with a wooden constant speed propeler in a 200
hp for an aerobatic plane? Is that possible, or absolutely crazy?
If possible, which kind of Issues must be addressed? Could be a three blade?
As far as I know, MT are basic wooden made.

Thank all of you in advance.

ps. by the way, do not forget Venezuela, they are having a really bad time
and any help will be wellcome.
