Cool! Why was it discarded? Were there issues with the design?

Wasn't literally discarded, just wasn't a great performer. No issues with design, just needs more power w/larger prop.
Larger engines I got, prop I need is over $300.00.

It doesnt realy matter the name of the store. Alot of hobby shops will carry props of that size. And there not too expensive (under 100$)

I don't recommend doing this. Has ability to sever limbs or kill instantly.

You make it sound soooo pleasant! Which reminds me, I was thinking of using some sort of fan, not a prop, as a load to test the LB once it's done.
