• The Biplane Forum is a large global active community of biplane builders, owners and pilots. From Pitts to Skybolts, to older barnstormers, all types are welcome. In addition to our active community, our content boasts exhaustive technical information which is often sought after for projects and maintenance. This information has accumulated over the 12+ years the forum has been in existence.

    The Biplane Forum is a private community. Subscriptions are only $49.99/year or $6.99/month to gain access to this great community and unmatched source of information not found anywhere else on the web. We are also a great resource for non biplane users, since many GA aircraft are built the same way (fabric and tube construction).

I just bought an Acrosport II project (click on the link in my sig for pics) and I am going to need a propeller for it. I will be doing aerobatics in it, but it will also be used for cross country/$100 hamburger trips from time to time. I prefer a wood prop to keep from stressing the crank to much. Engine will be an O-360 A4A. Sensenich's web site lists a W76HM8-58 (76x58) as a climb prop for the Acrosport II with 180hp. Does this sound right? Does anyone have any real world experience with this, or another props that they can comment on? Any other wood prop suggestions?
