I bought a Lycoming HIO-360 E1AD. It is turbocharged and will deliver 205 HP to 12,000 feet. It came from a helicopter and I am making the necessary mods for the airplane. I have also converted the single stick to dual controls. Wings are on-Tail will be on in a day or 2. Am looking for some suggestions regarding a constant speed prop.

I am making a cowling so I have the stock Zenair cowling for sale--cheap--also the all-in-one exhaust ,heat muff system

The CH801 is a 110 mph cruise airspeed airframe. No value in constant speed in this airframe.

I assume this will be for an 801? I doubt your low speed to cruise speed range will be great enough to make a CS prop useful. You'll add weight and complexity with no measurable improvement.
