  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.

If you have any questions about the Whirlwind Propeller their email address 
is wwpc at
