I have the opportunity to get hold of a new Colin Walker prop that was made for an S1. 3 Blades, fixed pitch, wooden. Not sure what the diameter and pitch are (72" and 76 degrees, or vice versa)?


The other option is a Twisted Composite from Steve Hill.


I'm not looking at any others to be honest, don't have stomach to budget these $10k-$20k props just yet (Whirlwind, MT, Hartzwell) etc.


I'm trying to find more info on the Colin Walker prop, since the 3 blade fixed pitch is mighty interesting (love the look). I had previously only considered 2 blades, since I had presumed all three blade props were constant speed.


Anyone have info/comments on this prop (incl confirming pitch/diam for the S1)


Thanks
