Yes I seen the first of these at my last visit to Jabiru. These were a hardwood prop as apposed to the softwood used by Jabiur and they were slightly modifying the pitch at the time and waiting for a new batch to arrive from the US. I gather this is that batch? Is it fitted to the J230C/D LSA? What was your climb?

Sorry still recoverying from Oshkosh trip!


Mine's a J230D, the T/O weight was 570KG.


Rod said all but the J160. Don't know if it has trialled on the J120.


I always climb out after clean up at 80 - 90 Kn so hard to say.


If you want to go for climb go for the 53" pitch. You'll get 1000'+ a min. Will get to 140KN OK but overspeeds I'm told. (3400rpm)
