Re: Toroidal propellers: A noise-killing game changer in air and water
I put Paul Lipps “Elippse” prop on my Quickie back in the day. It came off his Lancair for a test. It was a weird looking but fast prop. He made some pretty impressive numbers with the Phantom II Biplane in Reno. I tried to get Craig Catto to make one for me but he wanted to much to do it.
Paul was one of a kind and a great individual. I got to know him well. He was the brain trust behind Klaus’ Lightspeed Ignitions.

April 1 is right around the corner. But on a serious not, I may remember some of this circulating, pardon the pun, in Q-performance posts of the past, along with some other scimitar designs like those developed by a Lancair flier who used to frequent some of our Quickie West coast fly-ins, the Elippse propellor developed by Paul Lipps.
