    Default props

    anyone know where i can get stainless leading edge tape by the meter?



    also, with two bladed prop on a rotax engine, do you have to place the prop in a certain phase with the firing sequence?



    shouldn't be thinking of putting the rotax on my new craft, but its there and it looks fun! certainly after i read the sort of thrust im going to get with this thing!

    Jon,



    I haven't been able to get stainless prop tape - I use the 3M plastic tape - which is very effective. What make of prop do you have - you may not need tape if it's a Ultraprop.



    On using a prop with a Rotax I quote (from www.powerfin.com):

    "Rotax has set a limit for how much inertial mass is allowable on the A/B-box and C/E-box. On the A/B-box they want propellers with no more than 3,000 kg/cm2. A 72" – 3-blade Ivoprop ultralight propeller is about 4,500 kg/cm2. The same Warp Drive is over 10,000 kg/cm2. Powerfin propellers are 2,500 kg/cm2 for a big three-blade model and 1,800 kg/cm2 for a two- blade model."



    May not apply to you of course!

    .. or Windsports Centre Ltd on 01751 432356.



    If enough people start using props I'd be willing to buy a big roll of tape direct from 3M and selling it on at cost - let me know!

    A contact tells me props are the current trend, replacing fans, is that the way things are going?

    All UK racing craft in recent years have used multi bladed fans and all of the 120+ craft from all over the world at the recent world championships in France used fans bar a very small no of North American craft - so no prop trend there. However a number of UK people are interested in using props on cruising craft, largely US hull designs, and mainly on grounds of perceived lower noise levels.
