    I'm thinking about swapping my Tennessee 52X26 prop for a 60" Warp. I now get 300lbs static thrust at 3500rpm with the EA-81 Subaru. Should I go ahead and switch?
    Will the 60" Warp pitched to give 2600rpm produce about the same thrust as the Tennessee?

    Regards, Dino

    Hi Ed,
    Can you shed any light on my question on these Rotordyne blades that I believe are built by Robert Reece when he lived in Burbank, CA?
    My thread is under Rotor Blades,,,and regarding the glue question,,,
    Thanks , Ron Iaconis

    I just found this message, it is 8 June.
    She flies, straight as an arrow.It does not walloe from side to side or pitch up and down.
    Most of the time I fly at 45mph to 55 mph indicated.
    Having a great time flying this little Bensen.
    I think the problem in the 70's and 80's was standard Bensens were being converted to Rotax and just raising the thrust line on the mast to get the prop clearance aver the keel. and this created the HTL very unstable pitch sensitive (man killer) machines.
    A standard Bensen with a VW or Mac is very close to CTL.
    I do not know if I will make Mentone, but I will be at Shelbyville. I will let you fly her and tell me your thoughts on her handling.
    (you probally flew her already though.)

    Ed, I hope all of the weather missed you last night. From the radar it looked as if the storms went directly over the Middletown airport! God's speed!
