Iam looking for a prop to put on a pusher amphibian with a Cont IO-470 260HP.  Does anyone have any experience with Vesta Props?  If you prefer to not make you opinion public, please email me at dan@valleywoodcraft.com

Having a real interest in such aircraft, may I ask what you're building?

I am builing a Seastorm Z-4.  It was a kit from Italy.  It looks like a streamlined small Aircar (Seabeee) You probably never heard of it, since there are only 3 in the USA and none of them are flying.  I have spent 9 year working on it and am now starting the egine and prop install.

 

Did you build the Aircar in your avatar, or is that a Seabee?  It is too small to tell.  If you built, can you tell me what engine and prop combination you used?  Thanks

Hi Mark,

Your Spencer Aircar is SO NICE !

Looks like you have a Continental Tiara engine in it, the 6 cylinder, How Do you like it? I never saw one running!

But I REALLY like the idea behind them. How is THAT MT prop form Germany?? If You need a spare engine, I can help you there...

Whats the Prop Diameter? The Tiara must be kinda similar in thrust output to the GO480 that I got.

Best regards,

Lars

Does anyone have any experience with props by other manufacturers used in a 6 cylinder pusher?
