Cutie with a Permax turbo 450

Hello,

I just bought the Cutie. A friend who has one uses a Permax 450T engine. I plan on using the same one. I'm unsure as to what kind of prop to buy. Any suggestions, and is there a certain rule to follow when picking a prop out?


Chris.

Chris,

Assuming that he is using the P450T direct drive, then use an AeroNaut 6.5x4 white fiberglass prop or black carbon prop on 8-cells.

If geared, then the prop size depends upon the gear ratio.

Regards.

Greg,

It is a direct drive. Thanks for the advice!

step up to a 7x4 apc, thats a good size prop for more sport planes, maybe we can get Dajudge to comment on this. he ran 7x4s on his 450 powered X-250
