Prop on Aerovee

Post by jonimike » Tue Sep 12, 2006 9:57 am

I had done very basic research on the possibility of mounting a variable pitch prop on the Aerovee engine.

It would seem that the Hoffman or VT(?) is the only viable options due to prop weight and vibration issues on other manufacturers/types.

May I request some opinions from other builders on this topic?

Hoffman prop

Mike please let me know where I can buy a Hoffman prop. It seems to me that its is the only way to go. but where do you find one. I e-mail a lot of guys with no success to find a new or second hand one.
I also tried a Woodcomp prop but the dealers said it will not work for a VW. I was told to stay away from a Ivo or other composite as well.

Johan,

I had spoken to Russel, and he is due to import a few second hand ones.

Give him a call, I believe he may be on to abou three.

Alternatively, on the Hoffmannprop website you can contact them directly and order one.

Regards
