I need some suggestions on putting on a constant speed prop on my S1S. I am getting tired of the noise it makes and so is every one else. I am currently running a fixed, and at 3400 rpm into the box its a bit noisy. We are starting to have some noise issues around where we live and I would like do what I can to prevent complaints from my airplane. I am told that it is the loudest airplane they have ever herd.
I never wanted to put a constant speed on before because of the weight penalty. But now I might have no choice. Does any one have any suggestions on what to use (MT,Hoffman,Mcauley,Whirl Wind,??) and how the weight would effect the performance? I know the CG will go forward. Any performance issues? Any suggestions?
Thanks Glen Marshman Chapter 12 IAC prez
