Whirlwind prop for RV10
I just had the honor to install the NEW Whirlwind 3 Blade prop on my RV10 for testing with Jim R. From Whirlwind. I had the standard Hartzell.
Prop and spinner installed with the same cowl spacing, no issues except having to lengthen the nose gear slot on the bottom of the cowl because of having a extra blade in the way.
As wonderful as the Hartzell is I must say this Whirlwind was nothing short of amazing!!! Increased climb, smooooooooth!!! Very smooth. All my temps seemed even better, closer. We took the 10 up to 10.5 ft to see if it matches the Hartzell cruise and it's so close I really need to take a longer trip to get better numbers but initially it seems to have not lost any as other three blades do.
Did I mention how smooth and balanced the Whirlwind is???
Pics and other info will be coming soon from Whirlwind,
