I would out a 5 blade saber on it fro Sensenich or a 2 blade NGH. And if you ever need repairs or service you don't have to send it all the way to California.And there customer service is the best! :thumbleft:

Hi lostcracker2,

For your angle valve O360 (200hp), we recommend the 2-blade 70" Whisper Tip Narrow. This WTN blade is an excellent match for the hp and RPM of your aircraft motor for maximum thrust and performance. The price is $1590 with free shipping and 30 days satisfaction guaranteed, so you can make sure you love the propeller.

We recommend you purchase through one of our dealers for the best service and support.

If you have any questions, please feel welcome to call or email me anytime.

Sincerely,

If your looking for speed you can run a 68-70" 3 blade H
if your looking for an all around good ride prop with the best fuel economy a 2 blade 70" NGH has proven to be a real winner.
Finally if you want all of the low end and more of a hunt style prop a 68-70" Q is your ticket.
Hope this helps.

Oh brother... I have been on the same boat for now 3 months. Now that my build is coming to an end it's crunch time and now I must decide. From talking to experienced people in the field it has come to a conclusion to put either a q series, ngh or 5 blade saber. Now what I'm going through is deciding the prop size. I'm between a 68" and a 70". I like to go really fast but I love to run dry. O boy oh boy. Why can't a manufacture make something that does both. Lol... Good luck bud.

seen quite a few 360s with the whirlwind whispertip narrow and all were impressive id call patti if you have any questions or concerns whirlwind is an absolute pleasure to deal with most durable props ive ever ran plus the through bolt hub design makes it so much simpler if you ever need to take the prop off to change alt belt or anything else and i agree with james just because they are in cali that means absolutly nothing hope this helps

At the end of the day I've figured it's all preference really. Whatever floats your boat.

Your 0360 on that 10 ft sled will run dry with a 66-70" prop. Or it's a turd! I'd go w a 68" 2 blade and find the best deal. They are all good props

I also have a 200 it's on a DB Ultralight.It originaly had a 68" Cypress.great hole shot in deep water very snappy ran dry with ease.I wanted more low end push so I went to a 72" Q.I do cruise at a lower RPM and move around on the ground at a lower RPM but did loose some snap.I'm woundering now if maybe I would have been better off with a 70" instead of the 72".I live in Louisiana and don't have the luxury of being able to try different props.You guys in Florida are lucky you have access to trying different props on your rigs to find out what works best LOL.From all the post I've been reading it looks like the 70" is what most people are recomending for the 200 HP.I guess eventualy I will have to give one a try.

For me it would probably be the Whisper Tip Narrow maybe even do a 68 or 69" if you want a bit more snap. That prop is a perfect match for a 4cyl and has the swept tip for less noise. IMO the Q series is desighned for 6cyl aircraft and its to much for even a 200 4 banger, yea they can turn them but I think there are better/more efficient choices now. I dont care for H or Ngh's but thats just me.

The Water Walker Cypress blades make for a hell of a 4cyl prop as well but they will be louder in noise.

Then you got the Sabers or the new Whirlwind Razors as well. I bet a 5 blade setup would be a bad dude on that 200 and they get style points too.

Well I'll go against the rest I like a 66 inch prop 68 if I have too I run dry not alot I like snap and I love topend I also liked wood until last month 66x42 would work or a 5 bld warp 66-68 good luck I'm sure most props will work great I just prefer a short prop for more topend

Sincerely,

For what it worth I didn't like the wt narrow. I tried it and it was snappy but had no midrange. I have the same engine but mines the hio360 helicopter engine. The wt 72" regular blade is what works best for me. I tried the wt 70" cut down regular blade and didn't like it either. To me they cut the good part of the blade off. I would like to c a hub to make it a true 70" not a cut down version. I had a sensinich q 72" and the whirlwind whispertip out performed it. Not trying to start a fight over the ww and sensinich, I'm just statin what works best for me. The 72" wt performs very well but mine is set on like 1050 it ain't got much pitch in it. Thats why I'd like to see how it would do with a smaller hub and regular wt blades.
