You are right, that seems to be a problem with the reprops. I can not understand this, the main costs are making the mold and not the material. Why did GI not use the proper material.I would rather not have a plastic prop that is known to fall apart for no reason.
Even though my original props and the repo's I use haven't given me many problems, I'm still rather interested in all the fancy upgrades you come up with. I hope you get enough interest to do a batch run and hopefully the price will be reasonable.
