    Hello BDN,

    I'm posting this for the first time. I want to thank everyone for the great input on this forum. I have been reading treads for days about pods, rim drive, SD. I can't find much data on rim drives.
    Has anyone seen a gear driven rim drive propeller? just wanted to get some input from experts!
    I started with a list and very basic drawings.
