Looking for advice in regards to having a prop built (Catto 3 blade} for my S2E project. At this point just going back and forth getting them general information. A specific pitch and length hasn't been recommended yet, but a target design RPM of 2800-2900 RPM WOT straight and level flight has. My mission for this aircraft will be mostly short flights/basic aerobatics and occasional short hop $100 hamburger, etc. Stock airframe with 200hp IO360. Opinions and advice appreciated.
