New high performance Hartzell Prop!

Available now!

I’m pleased to announce the availability of an improved Scimitar style prop from Hartzell. Flight test was performed in Nov 2011 with Mike Smith’s SX300 , IO-580, with 10 to 1 pistons. It basically is a Lancair Legacy blade with an improved hub that fits our aircraft. The spinner backplate requires some modification [see photos below]. The weight is approx 80 lbs. The diameter is full 75 inches [legacy blades have 1 1/2 inch cut from each tip for their ground clearance]. Performance has not been definitively determined , but a 3-4% increase in efficiency/thrust gain might reasonably be expected. Full payment is required and then the order will be placed.
