cato prop

Recommended Posts

I put one on my long in November. Before that I ran a Prince 2 blade for years. The Catto 3 blade is smother, quieter, and better takeoff and cruse performance than the prince, but weighs a little more. Quality of work vary good. It takes some time for him to deliver. The price is not out of line.

I originally purchased a Sensenich and did all my taxi tests with it, but decided to buy a Catto due to the ground clearance fears I had with the Sensenich. I flew the Catto all thru my phase I testing and it performed flawlessly. I can't compare it to another flying prop as it is the only one I've flown, but I can say that the experience dealing with Craig Catto was good. It took awhile to get the prop, but it is well built and looks beautiful.

I just bought one from http://www.cattoprops.com/.

Price is right and Craig is a nice guy and has a good rep.

He just started mine last week. Said I'd have it in 5-6 weeks.

That's OK since the Vez is down for maint. I got a fuel leak at the bottom of my two sight guages in the back seat area and I'm replacing most of my switches for the main power + radio, strobes, trim, etc.

The Composite prop will replace my Sensenich wood 56"

The wood prop has a few small cracks showing in the hub plus some minor but scary looking dents that penetreated the clear laquer coating in a few spots. The wood prop has a 3.5 hub and the composite has a 4" hub so i'll be getting new prop bolts as well. But at least it will match this nifty white kiss type spinner I got. I would go 3 blade just for coolness factor but I dont want to have to buy a new spinner as well.

 

I think I'll be happy with it.
