Are scimitar propellers more prone to breakage than "standard" straight propellers? Some scimitar shapes have quite an aggressive curve, and it seems to me that the strength of the propeller would be reduced. I have heard of one instance where a tip broke off, but one incident doesn't really prove anything. I'm considering buying a scimitar type propeller, but I want to make sure it is safe. I have a baby on the way this month so I'm thinking about these things more than before. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. If anyone can recommend me to someone who is an authority on the subject, that would also be greatly appreciated.
