I am fascinated with trying a two blade prop on my new gyro.
Given that most of the vibration is on two blade props on a tractor with the 2 per rev pulse hitting the windscreen and buffeting the whole airframe.
Naturally we won't have that on a pusher, so is the problem less severe on a pusher?
So long as I can find a prop that can soak up 120hp with only 71" diameter, I would like to try.
From the little that I have read so far it seems the 2 per pulse is still a problem on pusher gyro's, What are your thoughts?

I don't see any more vibration problems for a two-bladed propeller than for a three-bladed one when both are pushing axially. Neither for the tractor nor for the pusher.

No problem with the 2-blade propeller for the engine of the specified power. What are the revolutions? What is the gear ratio of the gearbox?

Since Tennessee Propeller went out of business does anyone know if the company or equipment
is up for sale.

I don't think Culver props bought Tennessee prop but last year there was a show on TV about a girl who had taken over Culver props and she was making wooden props (she loads a pattern prop into a machine and it makes the props after she glues up the blanks). In another post on the forum someone had contacted her and she had indicated she would make a prop for a MAX i think for 350 or 400 dollars.

What I am interested in is Tennessee Propeller's equipment, templates and inventory. I am sure I would not be able to afford it, but you never
know. I can't imagine if they were out of business for good that they would not sell off the equipment, templates and inventory.
I am familiar with the girl with Culver props. She has videos all over youtube. She learned that trade from her grandfather.
