    Wanted Looking for a prop

    Thats one of the things I am trying to find out. I am putting a continental 065 in a minicoupe. I am guessing that I will have to measure from prop hub to the ground, less about ten inches? Somebody said about 56 inch but did not know the pitch. So I can see I have some digging to do.

    BRS - don't leave the ground without it

    If the money was not a factor, I would have one installed in any plane That I may ever own. That being said, I will never go parachuting. The idea of jumping out of a perfectly good plane is nuts. I know my training and trust myself, if the time comes I only need a football field opening to put...

    Hart Aero be careful/ripoff

    I have owned my companies for 20 years in good times and bad, If a job is being paid for when job is completed then you can have delays.
