Online Community of Zenith Builders and Flyers
While discussing aviation accidents with some co-workers I went to the NTSB website and was surprised (and saddened) to see that a 701 got damaged two weeks ago out where I live: accident report
But I was also excited because I thought that would mean there was a Zenith builder around but from the registration details it looks like the owner is a snowbird from Oregon, just visiting.
And then I found this picture of him and the plane (taken 10 days before the accident):
I don't know much (ok anything) about props but why would someone put a 5 bladed prop on this kind of plane? What are the advantages, I always thought that big engines = more props but I am a total novice here.
Hopefully he can fix the damage and get back flying again.
