7EC C-90-12 Prop questions

Post by TomFord » Wed Jun 27, 2012 15:08

Hey guys, what is considered a climb prob for a 7EC C-90?

Also what is considered a seaplane prop for the same plane.

It appears that on the TCDS, that the seaplane prop length is the same as wheels. So i guess im looking for the pitch of the two props.

Could anyone help me out and clear this up for me?

Thanks

Tom

Tom, I have a Seaplane Prop on my 7CCM with the C-90, but don't remember the pitch off hand. I will check my log books when I get back up to the Airport. If you check with Dick Bovey at Argyle Airport, he can tell you as he both rebuilts Champs and is very active with Seaplanes.

My Champ doesn't cruise very fast, but with 2- 200 pounders on board, it climbs like crazy.

if you dont mind checking. that would be great. My question to clarify is "is there any length difference between the seaplane prop and a climb prop(on wheels)"

So could i use a seaplane prop year round (floats and wheels)

I went in there a few months back with some of the trouble makers from supercub.org. :roll:
