Yes, my blades are .01 as well, I've had pretty good success with the two shown in the photo below, one has all the area in front of the spar, and the second has a little bit behind as well, it's been difficult to decide between these two, they both give a good amount of flare. So yes, I don't think you really need to do the 'not attached to the spar' thing for F1L.

A6 is another story, they flare but not as much as I'd like. Photo shows the prop I've been using the most, just a slight mod of your prop Olbill with the .020" bass spars at right angles, makes it easy to drill the hook hole and the hook snuggles into the V cross-section. I could modify one of these by just making a little slit in the back where the blade attaches, similar to Rey's, though I'll probably wait to hear his report first!

I sandwich the prop shaft between the spars. Your props look very nice.

Yes, I've done it that way as well, photos attached, in the bottom prop, there's an overlap of the spars (easy), in the top one it's one piece that I drilled (not easy). I've been doing the cross-bar approach lately shown above because it sits nice and so is easy to drill, plus the bent wire sits nice in the cradle. Also, with the cross-bar, the blades basically sit flat on the spar if you use a 45 degree angle, which is nice (I've been using a 50 lately, so it's just at a slight angle).

It flies!  Not very well, but more development is needed- a bigger rudder for sure.  It tends to Dutch roll.  I did not put in many winds, but will take it slow getting it to work.

Oops, something went wrong, can’t get video to come out right

Here is a short clip of remodeled A6. Tip plates removed, weight has reduced to a manageable level.  I believe the tip plates may have been misaligned, causing the rear end of the model to do the Mambo.

It is flying much better now on these low turns.

Hope this works!
