Ultra-Prop Propeller Assembly

I guess yesterday was really the start of the build log for the Six Chuter P3 Lite PPC but today was the first day I put something together.  I ordered a 4-bladed prop to provide a little more thrust to help offset the bigger tires and the weight they will add.  When the prop arrives it needs assembly.  The four blades have to be installed to the prop hub along with the blocks that set the pitch of the propeller.
