How do you think this prop might perform on a RV9 with a O 320 D 2 J 160HP ? Presently running a Prince P tip 68 / 76 PK.

Here is what Catto responded when I asked about a prop for my -9A. You should contact them directly with your questions. They are very helpful.

Hi David,
Thank you for taking the time to write us. We offer a few different props for your application depending on the performance you're looking for. The diameter is 67". The pitch will range between 69"-71" depending on the performance you're looking for. The 70" is what we call our good all around propeller, this one should hit around 2700 at wide open throttle straight and level at 8000'.
If you need more of a climb prop we can run a 69" or if you're looking for more of a cruise prop you can run a 71".
Our three bladed prop is $2850. We offer nickel leading edges for $750. The nickel is a great option if you fly through rain or off grass. It will really help prevent any erosion on the leading edges.
The RV-9A uses a 13" spinner. We offer our spinner kit fit to your propeller for $575. It is a carbon spinner dome, carbon front bulkhead and an aluminum rear bulkhead. What type of prop do you currently have on there? If you have a metal prop, you may need a new extension. If you have a wooden prop your hardware may work.

Kind Regards,

Nicole Catto

What kind of TAS did you get out of this at 2500rpm in cruise?

Thanks!

Initial power application = 2350 RPM
Climbing at Vy 120 MPH = 2450 RPM
2500ft. at 2500 RPM = 162 MPH
8500ft. at 2700 RPM = 175 MPH

All data taken was within 10 lbs. of gross weight

Definitely a climb prop. Great for Acro or high density altitude field.

Still not bad at all. Looks like with conversion you are 152kts at 8500 at 2700rpm. I'm at 150kts at 2500 rpm with my whirlwind GA prop which is adjusted for cruise. Running the O-320 ed2 with 9:1 pistons on my -4.

I don't know the answer so am asking. Can our engines run redline 2700 rpm sustained at cruise? I've always thought 2600 or less was better. I know MP + RPM = 48 would yield 75% power

Yes, it all has to do with % engine power. I recently added manifold press to my engine monitor, and I added that data below.

Initial power application = 2350 RPM
Climbing at Vy 120 MPH = 2450 RPM
2500ft. at 2500 RPM, 20.3 inches of manifold press = 56% power = 162 MPH
8500ft. at 2700 RPM, 18.6 inches of manifold press = 52% Power = 175 MPH

All data taken was within 10 lbs. of gross weight
