Re: Reusing a prop

Just an FYI. I called Indigo and the gentleman said that the I-30 has a reducing gear for the diesel engine and it wouldn't turn the prop fast enough. He said he had worked with another customer who wanted to do the same a while back and even changed the prop pitch, but it didn't help. In the spirit of sour grapes, it was going to be too hard to remove the old prop anyway... ;-)
