The flying buzzard 4 - busted prop

This was the flight https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PaaqPW--QSE when I found my split prop at the end. Again, I did not know it had happened and flew fine - all I could hear was a slight different noise behind my helmet.
Photos before and after the flight…

I’ve also flown with broken props and didn’t notice until landing. But large pieces gone cause some serious vibration/shaking.

I don’t know if it is only because of vibrations. Something else must have started the damage - small dent(s) / split in the wood fiber. In my case, sand and pebbles probably.
