Mad props to my…. No, no, that’s not what I mean. We’re still trying to decide what constant speed/variable-pitch propeller to buy for our airplane. It’s pretty frustrating, actually, and we’ve bounced back and forth a couple of times now. At first we thought we had a a lead on an MT for a really good price. The MT is a little less durable than the AeroComposites (ACI), and often needs to go to Germany for repairs, but for the price was a good deal. When that fell through we honed back in on the ACI even though it costs more. Now we hear from the factory that ACI is not offering them any discount and that delivery is now a whopping 6 months, we’re reconsidering an MT. I’m not sure where we’ll net out yet, but I’m hoping to have the prop on by spring and having everything ready well in advance of flying her to Oshkosh, so I’m leaning towards the MT.
