Deane Philip installing his Honda based Viking 130 in the CH-701 
Nice installation

Viking promised the DUC propeller company to test their Carbon fiber blades and hub system.  We have now made one flight and so far so good.  Initial impressions are:

  • Extremely light weight due to the "forged" carbon fiber hub.  
  • Very low vibration due to thin rubber coating of blade shanks
  • Good performance from only 70"   -   145 mph sea-level CH-750 CruZer speed at 75% power
  • Availability of variable pitch propeller using push-rod through gearbox top gear.
