GyroJake,
I would like next stab at it. Can you tell me the HP rating for it? I am looking for a prop for Robs old dominator. It has a 90 hp? suzuki w/ redrive.
Thanks,
Brad

If you click on the link I provided they will be better at the true specs than I.
There will also be a phone # to call the company to get the info. I'm not sure what pitch blocks you will need or if the prop will even work for your application.
Thanks

Jake

After some research, I don't think this will work. Darn
Thanks

Ray, the ultra prop uses a pitch block when the blades are bolted together.
You may have to experiment with the pitch to get it right, but they have a chart that should give you an approximate pitch for your engine, pitch blocks here. http://www.competitionaircraft.com/ultralight-aircraft-parts.html

The Ultrprop will not have the performance of the warp drive, but if you are wanting to stay part 103 legal or have a slow gyro (gyrobee type) it might work out just fine.

Geeze, sorry I lost you a sale Jake...................:(

It's not that.....after thinking about it I would rather have an infinite adjustable instead of "fixed" blocks that will cost $28 a set to find the pitch that would be optimal. It's a very good price if you know exactly what your optimal pitch is.
I'm not that knowledgeable.

This prop is set up for a 503, ready to go bolt up and fly. If you need to modify it for what ever reason thats up to you. The prop is ready to go,never used and has all the parts.

Scott no problem , no good deed goes unpunished!!! Your posts are always helpfull and welcome. Can't win em all.

Jake, is the prop still for sale? if so I will take it just for a later on project, would you happen to have the prop cone by chance? or can i still get one ? I just happen to have a complet set up for one of these props somewhere, 3 blade I think, Hub and blocks but no blades... thanks Billy

Hey Billy, I think I have a bunch of "cones" if you mean spinners.

The Ultraprop used to spit them off regularly. It gave us a reason to go flying again... to go looking for the spinner.
I developed a kit that would bolt the spinner on and end the problem. I might have some of those left too.

That prop was Air Command standard issue for many, many machines.

e-mail me as I don't check in here often

Thanks Tom, I will be needing one and a kit to hold it in place as well.. I to had a few times of flying the return path looking for the same spinner i had just lost in my old MX and also On one of my old challengers.
send me one complet set up and let me know how much to send for it. I also wil be looking for a rotorhead set up later if the price is right.

I need to fly man, to much work and not enough play................. Thanks Tom. 931-542-8697
