Re: Q200 Prop

 

Given Prince recommends for a 100hp Q-200 a 85/72 prop, would this one be way too big?

With regards to fixed pitch prop selection I would encourage you to demand a composite (wood core - composite wrap) and Catto and Prince both offer that. My experience with a wood only prop cost me my airplane and a bunch more. If you inspect your airplane before each flight, maintain torque settings routinely, and take all other precautions concerning prop care you will be fine but my preference is to have a propellor built in such a way as to give you a bit of warning before any major portion of it departs the vicinity.  I flew behind an Aymar-Demuth that was all wood. It was a great propellor in almost every other way, but when a tip departed, it got real loud. And then it got real quiet, until it got real loud again.

Re: A Genuine THANK YOU

 One day you'll attend a FOD and that is an experience. 🙂  Might be a good idea to plan to attend this one in the Autumn by flying in one of your other aircraft if you can, Robert. The Tandem Wing crowd are not at odds, even though the basic two designs originated differently and from two different sources.  One thing both designs share in common is..you can't take a lot of baggage on X country travels. One of the old "saws" is the only baggage the Q2 or Dragonfly pilot can take is a ham sandwich but only if flown while naked and be sure to wear at least UV 50 sunblock!!!

Sadly it is not.  The current owner had not flown it in a couple years.  I contacted him and asked if we could buy it back and he is considering.  He is not ready to give it up yet.

It is a nice one thank you for saying that.

Thanks Jay!  Yes, that TAS checks out fairly close.  I remember a long cross country where I had 173 kts true but up at 11,500ft.

Good info there so thanks for sharing!

Ok, Thanks Corbin. So it is designed to dissipate 100+HP at 2900 RPM. 100% efficiency would give you 198 mph TAS. The efficiency will not be 100%, but if it was 90% that would give you 178 MPH true at 2900. Does that sound about right?

 

For general information, here are the dyno torque curves for the various continental 4-cylinder engines. The O-200 is the red dots and with 9.5:1 pistons, the green dots, and 10.5:1 pistons the grey x’s. It is important for the prop maker to know which engine you have. At 2900 RPM near sea level, the O-200 standard pistons would yield 104 BHP. With the 9.5 pistons you would see 114 HP, and with the 10.5 pistons you would see 118 HP

Yes your correct Corbin.  Your motor is a "bit" higher thank 100HP however.  Not sure what motor Robert will be using for 120hp.  If it is an 0200 then simply ask Catto to cut one for the HP you expect.  They can trim it if needed.

Hi Corbin, 

You may have the gray Catto prop Mark Summers put on it with the larger 4” hub (tapered front hub). . If it's that one, I think it's a 60/70. What is the max RPM you can get from the engine? 

Of course, I could have it confused with another one.

I’m not sure, however, my engine placard states 100hp and Catto made this prop specifically for this engine/plane.  Is that correct, Martin?

Are 60/72 for the 120hp or also the 100hp O-200?

Hi Corbin,

 

Have you ever been able to turn 3300 RPM in level flight?  If not, what is your max RPM in level flight?  Do you have the 10:1 pistons?

 

Cheers,

Jay

Hey Jay,

 

It’s a 60 x 72 with a redline max of 3,300rpm.

Martin is right…I’m still running the Catto “cruise” prop and have no issues.

Catto or Prince both make excellent props for the Q200 and TriQ200.  We have run them both with great results.  Corbin is running the Catto still on the Q200 and it is doing him well I believe.

Borrow a prop that works well and send it to Alaina at Culver Props in Missouri for duplication. It's cheaper and faster.

So I just went to Prince Props to see cost and timing for a new prop ... Turns out their wait time is 10 months, yes TEN MONTHS. I know many of you are using Catto props and I have reached out to them too.

Any other suggestions for buying a prop?
Prince suggested 58" diameter with a 70 pitch ... Is that in line with your experience?
Anyone has a prop for the Q200 around they'd sell?

Thanks Robert
