There is the easy way to do it here:  http://www.parmodels.com/Plans/P47D.pdf (the prop plans and directions are on the last page, and you get a cool NoCal model plan to build...its a fun event.)

And the more advanced way here:  https://indoornewsandviews.files.wordpress.com/2012/10/inav-120-final.pdf  Page 17.  Specific to F1L props, but applicable to any of the indoor classes.  If you find an indoor flying site, try F1L.  It is a great event.  Also, I linked you to the hobby shopper ezb article a few posts back.  Prop construction is covered in there as well.

If you get to the point where you want to make your own pitch blocks, try this https://indoornewsandviews.files.wordpress.com/2012/10/inav_121_press.pdf.  Page 22

Start with the simple cylinder formed block from the first link, and work your way to more advanced designs.

I will also offer that for a ministick type model,  some .010" balsa, mounted and baked at a 15 degree angle on a 4" cylinder, and set to a pitch of 10" will provide adequate performance for your first lightweight model.  The tricky part there isn't the prop itself, but the thrust bearing.  See the hobby shopper article for how its done.

Not a problem Alex.  I am happy to help in any way I can. 

Also, where are you located?  There are some packets of flyers in various geographic locations, and one of the best ways to learn to fly indoor is by finding a mentor.  If we knew where you are located, we could get in touch with some local flyers that could show you a thing or two, and inform you of flying sites and meets.

That looks so much better.
I hope you feel you've progressed with this build.
Will you try a lighter model like the Poonker or Quark??

Thanks,

Yes i want to try something smaller. But need to learn  to build light propellers.

I had in mind k777, poonker , i have not seen the quark plan yet. I also saw a video of a micro milislick https://youtu.be/xtwEeEfP37M but i am not sure how difficult are the curves in the wings design, the size may be also more dificult to build. And finally i do not have a rubber cutter and the smallest size i can get is 1/16in (1.5mm), i imagine that smaller models fly with smaller rubber .

So i think i am limited to a model that uses 1/16 single string rubber.

I would appreciate any comment or advice,

Many thanks,
