    That was my first thought also, but it's tough to get any useful depth in that video. With only 2 on board, they must've had a good load of cargo/gear. It took forever to break water.

    It looks like the wind was a real beeyatch, but I also noticed not much going on with the rudder in that vid.

    The 3" hose is probably marginal in terms of airflow volume. A 4" will flow a LOT more air, like about 70% more. Also a small baffle around the cylinder right in front of the intake will keep the...

    I called American Propeller in Redding CA. this morning, and the tech said Sensenich has a limit of 8" cumulative (as Denny's info indicated) and McCauley has no stated limit.

    That's a lot more (8") than I expected. When I had my Borer (different mfg. I realize) bumped from 41 to 42, I'd swear the man at the prop shop said 3" was the cumulative limit. I'll have to call...

    I always thought there was a limit of either 3 or 4 inches of allowable pitch movement in the life of a prop. I've never seen any documentation either, just heard it said more than once. Now I have a...

    From a practical standpoint, I think that's leaning more towards the "cruise" end of the spectrum. Officially the cruise prop is 58", but that's a LOT of pitch for a 150 on a SC. For typical SC...

    That number seems a little optimistic to me, especially for 31's. On 2000's I would consider it plausible but I have a lot of time behind that prop (in a very straight and well rigged 12) and haven't...

    Prop wash will make it go left to some degree, tip vorticies are too far away to have any effect. The seed will be way too far below the airplane. If you'd have done this when you started the thread,...
