It appears that he is ignoring the suggestions or at least not responding.
Just curious!


Very good question. That flying mower is about the funniest thing i've seen, flying any how.

Sorry, I have been cought up between lacrosse practice for school and homework... Thanks for all of the ideas! I think it may just be easier to wait and buy an already made go kart... that would be easier, but i'll just work on the engine to tune it up and stuff

APC 20-8 Should do it if they make one to those specs. Problem is, that engine is only good for 3400 rpm's. Most airplane props are designed to run around 6000 to 9000 rpm's. The twist would have to be very very agressive.

Thats rc plane props, because of the 2stroke motor. Most full sized planes hardly reach over 3000rpm in cruise flight. so the bigger the prop the slower your engine has to run. Otherwise the tips, and large parts of the props break the sound barrier and they become useless
