What others say...
..."AeroMarine prop program is real nice. It's a lot better than any of the online calculators. Change one item and keep all the others without refilling them out. Not too bad on price. I think it's worth it.  The RPM is a slider so you can just keep bumping it up to see the result. Shows both calculated and slip speed. You select the slip %." [Techno - S&F Online magazine - June, 2003]
..."This (prop calculator) allows you to change anything you want without refilling and deleting and OK'ing stuff. Its cheap and nice to use.  If your going to use one regularly I would recommend buying this one...everything is changeable... rpms can be slid up and props changed along with a change in slip with a click".   (S&F on-line magazine - July, 2002)
..."I highly recommend the book Secrets Of Propeller Design by Jim Russell. He has the answers to your type of questions. The book will help you out immensely in finding what works best for you and understanding what's going on under the motor". [S&F magazine - "Whipper", Prince George B.C. Canada]
