Need a replacement prop ASAP


Recommended Posts

Anyone have a spare prop? Need ASAP.


Long EZ


150 HP


I’m currently at KPRC picking up my new to me Long EZ. We had a tip over and damaged the old prop. Replaced it with a borrowed prop from another Long EZ but it was for a higher HP engine and won’t work on my 150 HP as a test flight just showed.


Will drive anywhere within 8 hours or more to get it asap. Posting on multiple online locations so sorry if it looks like spam.

Sorry that I can't help.  I had a tip-back once.  It broke about 1.5" off one blade of a three-blade.  I cut the other two blades off as evenly as I could and it got me home.  That might be an option.  I am a little surprised that a prop for a higher HP engine would not work well enough to get you home.  Yeah, it would not be optimum but if it will get you airborne it might work.

I have tip-backed twice and almost a few other times.  It is something you have to be aware of.  I am pretty careful now.  Good luck.
