0.46 ASP Engine prop size?

Hi all,

A long long time ago (but in this galaxy).. I bought an ASP 0.46 sized engine (with the red head). Well I have recently discovered that I still have this engine in the possession of someone else who has had it stripped along with some other ASP engines and the parts are in his shed. I am going to give myself a little project and try and get at least one motor working. I am wondering is it an 11x6 prop I use on the 0.46 engine? I have this number floating around in my head for some reason....

Help greatly appreciated...

Andrew.

A 11x6 will be fine. They are the same as a Magnum 46.

Thanks mate... thought there were similarities between the engines. most likely coming out of the same factory to reduce costs etc...

if you can find them, the bolly clubman props are really good, as the'yre that half an inch you need to get your engines honking.

I was running a 10.5 x 6 and it was the sweetest prop for a 46 IMO.


Oh and for the record the engines aren't coming out of the same factory, but have their roots in the same engine, so they're very similar in looks but metallurgy can be vastly different between brands

Thats weird I thought they were both made by SANYE. Is Magnum the better brand/better metals?
