Maidened the plane at Monday's BBQ for Canada Day.  Took off well but spit the prop at about 4' altitude right after take-off.  Did a Sullenberger on dry land.  (Could not make it to Teterboro)

Used the same prop but with a normal collet prop adapter.  It flew well and fast.  Flew hands-off after trimming it. 

Neat project.


Photo 1- the retrieval crew found the plane. Looks like Andy had to go to the bathroom. :)
Photo 2- found the prop stuck in the grass about 20' east of the runway.
