Dusseldorf Props
« on: January 25, 2014, 10:46:46 PM »

Evening All,

After chewing up the prop on my Dusseldorf last weekend, I've make up my mind to get some Brass one's. it runninn on the Navy 3/1 gearbox's and was running on 50mm Robbe props but to be honest they don't have much pitch on them. what would be the best prop for them

cheers

I would try 40mm as brass props have far more pitch.
Just buy the cheapest or borrow some and see if the performance is what you want.
With 3:1 gearboxes you are unlikely to overload as I have run 100mm props on a similar set up.

Bonjour,

If that speed is ok for you, see  HERE, I can ask which engines and propellers my club president has chosen.
