Kiwi feathering prop

    Does anyone have any experience or thoughts on the use of a Kiwi feathering prop?
    I have an old Volvo MD-2B with a fixed three blade, and I got the idea from the Stocton seminar that is not the most efficient thing to have.
    It looks like I can buy almost 2 kiwis for the price of one Max-prop.
    Thanks for the thoughts,

    Chuck - Thanks for dropping by Ladds - nice to meet you.  Below is a photo of a Kiwi 18" on Dukes W32.  I'm hoping for a report from Duke after he is in the water. See the link for all the images at Ladds-- there is some thought that 18" is to large - close to the hull at the top.  Time will tell.
