I’ve done lots more flying today and have decided the new prop is the dog’s b*****ks 🙂
I have spent quite a bit of time analysing the power curve etc of my engine, and the rpm’s I am getting at static, unstick and climb are spot on, and are now really making the most of the HP the engine has. And it is so ssssmmmmooooooooottthhhh!!
I was happy with my Cub’s performance and wasn’t convinced it could be any better. After several hours of careful testing, I have calculated a 15% increase in climb performance and a 9% increase in cruise speed. Added to that, it is considerably smoother than the prop I have been using until now, as well as looking stunning.
