    You're absolutely right.
    Propeller is not anything special.
    Normal straight-bladed propeller.
    And it's price is 490 € only.
    However, the blades were specially shortened to a diameter of 1680 mm and widened to increase the thrust of the propeller.
    This was done by the request of SP-34 plane's operators.
    They were concerned by the distance between blades and the ground.
    Still saber-blades propellers are significantly better.
    They are quieter and more efficient.
    But more expensive.
    Two weeks ago a CT-SW plane in Kiev easily got to 250 km/h with the Rotax-912-80 engine.
    And this is without the spinner!

    Hi Vladimir,

    Do you have an in flight adjustable prop available for the 100hp Rotax 912ULS? I am currently running a fixed pitch 62" x 93" prop and the aircraft is achieving 175ktas at 2260 prop rpm but I need more pitch for more top end speed.

    Unfortunately, we do not deal with variable-pitch propellers. All the tasks we solve conventional propellers, which are much more reliable and cheaper.
    Mу friend has CT-SW.
    He have bought an expensive german propeller with adjustable pitch to replace ours.
    His goal was to achieve 300 km / h.
    But as a result he had gain no additional speed.
    And the price was about 2800 euro.
    The adjustable pitch does not increase speed by itself.

    Absolutely, but more than 93" pitch on a fixed pitch prop will likely have it stalled at low speeds so we would need a long runway and not climb very well. This is why we need an IFA, so that we can get a better top speed but also improve our takeoff and climb as well.

    Oh well, I shall continue to save for the (expensive) alternative options...

    It's a Lightning Bug.

    Here is a photo of it being weighed prior to its first flight after the installation of a Rotax 912ULS.

    It still needs to be repainted but that will happen once all the modifications are completed.
