The Whirlwind failure appears to have been due to improper installation (torque) of the counterweights and not due to the Whirwind blades. I have been flying behind a Whirlwind 400 series prop for a while and absolutely loved it! I recently upgraded to the new Whirlwind 400C prop with the W I D E carbon blades. I can attest that THIS PROP ROCKS! and the people at Whirlwind Propellers RULE! I cannot express enough the superiority of their customer service, the quality and performance of their product, or the confidence I feel while performing behind the 400C.
