It doesnt have any sense keep such discussion in this topic.
You (with all respect) have own opinion, different from mine (and
Our posts are too long and hard readeable for normal peoples (your
math and my english). IMHO we (both) spam this Group, the better place
is Yahoo Propeller Group.

IMHO - it will hard to static and of course impossible for dynamic
balance. Regarding VW - it can cause problems with crank shaft
cracking -if it will hang on the pulley end. (It allways can crack
even with normal prop ;-)
Anyway - it is very unique design, I saw it only in motorised gliders
whith propellers on arm draw out from the fuselage. (designer had to
make smaller hole in the fuselage)
