I intend to power my Piel Diamante with a 160 hp Lycoming 0-320. I'm trying to investigate the pro's and con's of fitting a metal or wood 3-blade fixed pitch prop. I'm not interested in a CSU or otherwise variable pitch prop, just a fixed pitch.
Has anyone out there fitted one to their 0-320 project? Is there an off-the-shelf prop that would do the job? Or would I have to get one made specially?
I would welcome any comments.
