What is the length and pitch of said props? But statements like "pulls like crazy" are meaningless.props are a black art...Propman's half Vdub props are near toothpicks and pull like crazy. Nowhere near the chord of either the Culver or Tenn and much lighter than the ones I've weighed.
well, "pulls like crazy" isn't meaningless...it means "pulls like crazy". Come on, man. LOLWhat is the length and pitch of said props? But statements like "pulls like crazy" are meaningless.
Using the culver over the Tennessee. With the culver I lost 10 mph in cruise. It also took 3000 rpm's before the airplane would even start to roll. With the Tennessee prop at 2000 rpms I am moving. I should also note this prop is being used on a 600 lbs airplane. This weight is wet with pilot.
Yeah I know that's what he recommends that's why I got a Tennessee first.Scott Casler recommends a Tennesse prop over all others. I had already purchased or ordered the culver when he told me this. He said stick with a 54x24 Tennessee prop. Just what I did.
The Tennessee prop was stated to be a 54x24. The culver was stated to be a 54x24. So these two props are being called the same. Meaning 54x24. As a experimental airplane owner what else could one ask to get this right or the correct prop. Why I posted or started this thread. To show two props called the same are not really the same.Unluckily numbers only compare between same brand. Each prop builder pitches different and calls them different. 5 for one is not the same 5 for the other. The funny thing to is put the same two props on a different airframe and the better prop can switch.
That doesn't mean they are the same. Every prop carver measures pitch a little differently. There is no standard way of doing it.The Tennessee prop was stated to be a 54x24. The culver was stated to be a 54x24. So these two props are being called the same. Meaning 54x24.
I'm with Turd.That doesn't mean they are the same. Every prop carver measures pitch a little differently. There is no standard way of doing it.
I think you do better telling them what kind of plane you have, how fast it goes and what kind of engine. They should have a pretty good idea of what you need. Order by length and pitch and you might not be happy.
Heck that's a great idea. Maybe we can make Airventure one big prop party!A prop party is always a good thing to try and have. Friends bring a prop and you try it. Then even if not what you want you can get static rpm numbers with size and see if a modified version of what was tried will be the one. Without previously building a prop for an exact airframe, it probably takes 3 props to get it dialed in perfect. Where you cut that is up to the wallet.
