One of the branding accessories that came with my Pilot-RC Extra 50cc was a pair of propellor covers. However, they were too small for my 24x8 Xoar wooden props. They fitted just right my 18X10 wood props that I use for my OS 33 GT engine.
Anyway the covers seemed to be made of a stretch material which I subsequently found out to be neoprene. I went onto Ebay and found a supplier of small neoprene sheet material at a reasonable cost. I cut a pattern to shape and length for both blades and SWMBO used a strongish thread and double stitched the two pieces together and turned them inside out for neatness. Here is the finished article.
I am pleased with the result and the elasticity keeps the covers on during transit. Now it must be said that there is never a complaint from my wife when I tramp through the door, or is delivered, the latest piece of RC gear that I really must have! The only proviso is that when she wants something I stump up the cash. Seems to work quite well really…...

Oh never let your wife go. A lady who allows a man to enjoy his hobby is very rare!
