My corsair spins a 14-10 four blade prop. I want to use a five blade prop on this, (dont ask why, I just do LOL!) anyhow do I knock down the diameter to do so? Lets say a 12-10 or a 12-12?

14/10's 4- Blades are pretty rare , unless you find them in composite or fiber filled resin.

Woodies are just as rare- pretty skilled milling and balance required

Only seen a handful.

To take a 14/10 four blade and convert it too a 5 blade 12/12 0r 12/10
or find 5- blade 12/10's got me stumped.

At one time their were a few clamp style hub's that took individual blade insert's : Byron was one - but never a five blade.

If you cracked or broke or chipped a blade on landing it could do some hairy stuff. Then you stocked insert's. Mustang, Jug, and P-40 which used a 3- blade

I prop on performance need's - and what the engine and airframe weight's are compatible. Can't see it when it's turning anyway.

Only performance I've seen out of a 4 blade is for scale look's or as a brake for going down hill on the vertical line.

Application of a 5 Blade ? maybe on SEA Fury ?

The knowledge is most likely here :: But the question seemed pretty stupid to respond too

WoW! Thats pretty harsh there greyeagle. Basically you called me stupid . I know for sure that wouldn't happen face to face LOL!
The thing is when knowledgeable members here are here for a reason, and that is to answer questions no matter how mundane they may seem. Nice to know that should a newbie come here and ask a question he/she is not sure of you will make them feel as if they have no sense! Im not a planker by hobby standards, this is only one of two planes I own, My passion is helis, which is why Im asking this question here. Anyhow thanks for your ignorant closing remark.
