I hope you and the list will take this reply as constructive . Whirlwind is a small company trying very hard to make a prop for aerobatics. While I don't know the owner/designer very well, I have met him. He has always been friendly and informative about his products. I personally do not own of have ever owned a Whirlwind prop, but I have several friends that have and they are very excited about the new "Wide Blade Carbonfibre" prop. The years invested in money and hard work can be put at risk by several uninformed stories put out over the internet. Just the nature of the subject line could burn in someones mind and have an effect on the success or failure of the business. Aerobatics does not have many suppliers of equipment. Competition has alot of rewards to all of us. Even though Whirlwind is small their sucess with the wider blade has resulted in MT going back and maximizing their blade design resulting in a better prop for all of us. Whirlwind is very easy to find and I am sure the owner would be willing to talk to you about your concerns. If you are still not satisified, I would suggest you would use the exploder to ask for " Information about performance and dependability of Whirlwind Props" I am sure you would get the same information without asking a loaded question. Thanks for your time and I hope you take this in the manner it was intended. >From: "L W" <lawillson at hotmail.com> >To: acro at gf24.de >Subject: [Acro] Whirlwind Prop Failure??? >Date: Wed, 24 Apr 2002 09:28:43 -0400 > >Hi All, >I was recently told a Whirlwind prop failed in flight but no details.
