These are 50mm Diameter Propellers I made for my 3d Printed Tug Boat. I Don't know the Pitch of the Prop as I don't know how to calculate them. It is designed for a 5mm shaft and has a 5mm nut slot on it for ease installation.
I have added some designs.
Update as of April 17, 2018
Added two propellers 40mm diameter for 3mm shaft. One is 3 blades and the other 4 blades. Both have approx. 16mm pitch. These 40mm props are for the Stan tug 1004

need a counter rotating version of this prop as well :)

if you are using cura, you can mirror / flip the propeller to make the counterotating prop

im looking for someone to make a custom prop for my trolling motor if youre up to it.

hello! how about you send me a message with your requirements. thanks!

Propeller pitch is the distance the propeller will travel in one rotation ie 50x50 ,50 mm dia by 50 mm pitch "or 50 mm forward in 360deg

thank you for that information, I thought it is more complicated than that.

have you posted your tugboat model?

the tugboat will still require some modifications and revisions before I can post it. I would also like to test it more in the water so that I can be sure it's a good design. I'll keep you posted.
you can see it here. http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2678382
