Title: Replacement Propeller Options for G-24
Post by: kpriddle on August 20, 2016, 10:40:08 PM
Good evening, everyone:


So, during one of the flights this evening with my Bug, I cracked the pretty little propeller that came with my G-24.  It came in hot and struck the grass strip while running.  Does anyone have any suggestions for a replacement besides the expensive BlackSheepSquadron option (shipping is $25 from their website!).


Thank you in advance,
KP

I would try something like the Peck 4 3/4", drilled out and with the freewheel clutch filed off.

Hi KP

You can still buy Gasparin CO2 motors from the Czech Republic. They are stiff manufacturing too !

It would try emailing Jiri to see what spares he might have

Thanks, gentlemen.  I sent Jiri and email and, if he doesn't have any props available, I will go for the Peck prop.

Thanks again, gents,
KP

The old North Pacific Sleek Streak type props are pretty good. A little weak around the hub when drilled out for a Telco or similar, but the smaller G24 shaft shouldn't be too bad.

Good luck,

Dan.

The Brown peanut white / black A23 plastic props were good for the G24.
