Re: Fixed vs folding prop

The opening thud is a characteristic of the folding prop. So is the poor reverse performance.

Another thing to check in terms of cruising RPMs is whether the tach is accurate. In-accurate tachs are pretty common, being off by a lot is not unusual. See

Certified...in several regards...
