Airmaster Whirlwind vs Prince

Postby rpigeek » Sun Oct 21, 2018 4:26 pm

I’m curious to get opinions/data on going with an Airmaster with the 75” Whirlwind vs a Prince. For stol takeoff and cruise. Currently with a 912ULS, but considering upgrading to a big bore down the road. Both at sea level and about 8k DA.

My thoughts are that the Airmaster has more flexibility to play with RPMs and to adjust when going to the big bore instead of getting a new prop. However, the weight would hurt some takeoff performance, but that might be counteracted to be able to takeoff at max RPMs.

Then of course, the price difference.

Thoughts?
