Hello again, I am about to make a decision (brace yourselves) that is hopefully for the best. Let me know what you think.
Since I purchased this prop-stricken plane on eBay 2+ years ago, I ruled out repairing the MT constant speed prop due to costs (~$8,000 to fix). I thought to do the following:
I might be missing some other things as well, but regardless this began looking like a lot of work and essentially a different aircraft. I became somewhat hesitant and paralyzed.
With the passage of time a few extra coins have showed up in my piggy bank. It now occurs to me that I might actually save time, aggravation, even money, if I just fixed the MT prop! So that’s what I am now planning to do as the best route to get this plane airworthy.
In terms of me personally flying it, that’s an entirely separate project.
What do you think?
