Rospeller prop failure


Recommended Posts

Hi All,


A brief note to say that RA-Aus has received another report of a Rospeller propeller losing a blade in flight. The first being a year ago.


I am in contact with the factory about this (again) as this is the second blade we have lost on this particular brand.


Preliminary reports indicate that the 4 bolts holding the blade into the hub through tension, have failed.


A detailed examination of the part will be carried out and recommendations made, in conjunction with the factory, in order to prevent further failures.


If you have access to a different propeller, please use that in the meantime.


I will be contacting operators of Rospeller props and asking them to refrain from using the prop until a solution has been worked out.
