Default 2, 3, 4 blade comparison data

Here's comparison performance data for those interested.

Subject plane is a "Hacker Sky Arrow" which is limited to a 6" diameter prop. I think you will find the data most interesting when using the "VarioProp" 3 and 4 blade versions. The VarioProp pitch can be easily adjusted in .5 pitch increments ranging from 2.5 up to 6.0. Astounding!!!
Is there a big difference? You bet!!
Hope this helps answer some questions.
Happy flying,
Don
