Default Single bladed propeller

If you type this number below into eBay's search engine (at the top of eBay's opening page) you will see a decal for the maker of a single bladed propeller and a photograph of a light aircraft fitted with one.

I didn't know such a thing existed.

112713477564

Perhaps I should have left this until 1st April.

With kind regards,

Bob

That's a very rare propeller that goes under that decal, and I've even had one of the Sensenich mangers ask for my help in finding one. I imagine that it's quite collectible, but I've never found one offered for sale. It's a modern prop, so I've moved this thread into that category.

Thanks for posting those links.

I'm still not sure I understand how the single blade somehow relieves bending stress at the hub, but that's the claim.
