Big news today, we’ve ordered our CS propeller! This is really exciting for us, and will greatly extend the utility of our airplane. This doesn’t mean that our Catto prop isn’t a really good propeller, it is, but it’s like riding a BMX bike versus a 10 speed – it’s only got one gear. We have enough power that we mostly get good take-off performance, but when we’re heavily loaded on a hot day she doesn’t leap off of the ground… and she doesn’t like to slow down either. The ACI should fix this, and it happens that a little weight in the back will help our CG as well, which is a happy coincidence. Here’s a shot of Terry Miles ACI propeller.
