Re: Anyone ever tried a constant speed prop?

Fook, next time you are doing a run-up in a complex, try this for an answer to your question; bring the RPM's to say 1700, then bring the prop lever back until you see a 100 drop. Now advance the throttle. The rpm will stay at 1600 all the way to wide open. The 'governor ' is doing its job, but wou...

Anyone ever tried a constant speed prop?

So yeah, has anyone ever tried a constant speed prop on their boat? On an airplane, there is the propeller governer that contains oil and with some moveable internal parts. By adjusting a level, the prop pitch is adjusted. Can this be possible setup on a boat? Has anyone ever tried it?

Re: Getting back in the game

Marshpirate, I have read and heard a lot about the Freedomride. Once again, I have no way to get out on the water though and is why I am asking for someone on the SA family to adopt me. :lol:

Re: Getting back in the game

Dirtman, the 480 is a powerhouse of an engine. Fuel burn was horrible at 20gph roughly.
The 10 bld was pretty loud but it did what I wanted. Was so close to pulling the trigger on sensenich 'R' type 3bld and would have helped tremendously but I ended up selling whole rig completely.

Re: Getting back in the game

Thank you gatorfrog for the reply. If I ever get down that way I sure will get up with you. I am just looking to ride along with someone a few times and get a good look at the different set ups everybody has. Thanks

This may be a long shot

I know this is a long shot but I am very interested in upgrading from my 10 bld warp drive to a 3 bld sensenich R series. $2860 is a good chunk of change to be spending on something when I don't know how much difference it makes (I hear its night vs day difference). So I am here to ask if someone ha...

Re: Heck of a Party last weekend -- Lots of Trash left on KC

I fly out of Kissimmee airport daily as a flight instructor. I always look down to see all the airboaters riding around and wishing I could be out there with you. But I can also see the TRASH from the air too!! It's Not good and more vast of an area than you think.

Fook.. Awsome boat !! Lived in Rockville (Montgomery County) and hunted in Fredrick for many years.. Glad to see airboating made it the BIG MD !!!!! Yea, wide open should be 2850-2900... A 540, 480, 470 180 type aircrafts should cruise on a plane between 1900-2100.... Leaving a lot for running dry....

Hence why I think I need to turn the prop pitch more. So If I paid for your plane ticket, you'd fly up to Maryland and tune it for me? Hahaha

The 90 watt cubes draw less than 6 amps ea at 12 VDC so a relay is not recommended or necessary unless you are using a low amp switch or don't want to run your "power" wire all the way to your console.
