NeilK Posted August 20, 2009 Share Posted August 20, 2009 Neilk: I have a Long EZ with O 320 with and Aymuth Cruise Wood Prop. Thinking of "experimenting" with a new prop. What are you using??? Performance??? Or any recommendation of prop???? Thanks, __________________ Afif Saybe Long-EZ, HR-ATQ Afif, I've tried a couple store-bought props and found them adequate. Generally, I prefer a course prop. Something that will give me 23" manifold pressure at 2400 RPM at cruise, at 4000' ASL. This usually gives me 170kts. a little more in calm air. The purchased props have all been too fine for my liking. What I really want is a CS prop that is light weight and reasonably priced. So far, I haven't found such a beast. Since I can't seem to find the prop I want, I make them. The best so far is a 3 blade, 68" diameter with about 90" pitch. Unfortunately, my Hunt exhaust tends to burn one blade no matter where I index it. Second best so far is a 2 blade of similar proportions. I am currently working on a new 2 blade design with similar dimensions but with a wider cord. Neilk Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
