Hi everyone,, I was wondering if there are any good books, magazine articles or video clips done by model boaters that cover the "tuning" and "enhancement" of propellers? Any recommendations? Thanks

Probably the best overall research I've read is for full sized props and addresses racing applications. It's called "Secrets of Propeller Design" by
James D. Russell, P.Eng. from AeroMarine Research in Cambridge Ontario, Canada

Thanks, John

John,

I have that book among others, and it is a good reference.

I have a few others I will have to dig out of the library.

Thanks,

Mark

Thanks everyone! Ray and Greg I appreciate the copies and link. John I have seen the website for that book but was a little concerned it was full of hype rather than decent info, Mark,, I really appreciate your advice and will wait to see what references you have in your library! So grateful to you all! RegardsTom
