Great suggestion Frank, your wisdom is shinning thru.


Your the officer in charge of the much anticipated prop flight test so it really is your call on how you wish to pull it off.

Here are my thoughts for your consideration. Frank is spot on with a pilot blind prop test. Double blind would be even better. Two or more pilots blind to what prop they are flying at test time. Each pilot flying each prop twice in a random order with a surveyor wth clipboard standing next to them on the flight line recording their on the fly realtime subjective feel of the props in differing 3D and IMAC manuvers.

Again the props and testing torch has been passed to your capable hands and this is your deal / show now. Whatever you come up with will be absolutely superb. Make us all proud and kick some Kindest Regards, Your fan Speed.
