Whilst I received a 68" WarpDrive HP prop with the dis-assembled and engineless Air Camper project that I took on about a year back, now that the new Corvair is installed, (haven't test flown yet) I want to acquire a 2-blade wood prop to compliment the aura of the aircraft however, my efforts to find a ccw 2-blade wood prop in Australia have been woefully unsuccessful. I can have a prop made in NZ for about (US)$1100 but am unable to specify the appropriate dia and pitch for the 100hp Corvair and am loathe to take a gamble on buying an unproven and possibly inefficient airscrew. Any chance a Pietenpol afficianado in the USA or Canada might have a good useable (Corvair-proven) wood prop hiding in their hangar that's surplus to their requirements? Happy to purchase and pick up packaging & shipping costs to OZ if anybody can assist. Standing by for a flood of offers Bob Shanks, Perth, Western Australia
