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.

p1020887.jpgAnyway 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.

p1020888.jpgI 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…...

They look really nice and I love the simplicity behind them!

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