Best Prop for a Zenith CH 701

Posted on March 2, 2014 at 6:30am 26 Comments

Hi Fellow Zenith flyers and builders, I'm in the process of fitting a new propeller to my CH701.  I'm running a Rotax 914 turbo (115hp).  I'm not keen on a constant speed propeller, so what propeller would be appropriate to get good results for my aircraft?  If you have any experiences good, bad or otherwise, please let me know.

Hey Volker I run a 912 uls 100hp with a 72'' warp drive at 11.5degrees  and it halls arse off the ground down side my cruise is about 70 knots but I don't mind I am in and out of tight river beds ect and need the short field ability and I also just won the New Zealand STOL comps in Micro/LSA class. how long have you had the 701 I am really interested to know how the 115hp preforms with the added weight would love to check it out next time I am over your way
