Re: Prop bolts torque values

Today I had a good day of Flying at the field with my Ultimate with the hub crusher DA170....

Since the last hub issue with the Mezjlick 30X13, I have bolted the mighty Biela 31.5X8X14, and long story short, the hub din't compress at all, I just torqued the first time the prop and after some flights I checked the bolts. they did not move at all. I was the happyest man on earth!!!

I think for the moment I'll just keep the Biela on the Ultimate, trying to keep this prop as quiet as possible (my ears are still bleading!!! )

For my tastes, the overall performances are a bit worse compared to the mezjlick 30x13 EVO LF(slower spool up, less upline speed and way more noise..) but since looks like the only prop in my possession able to survive to the DA170 is the Biela, I will keep using this one .

What I really like about the biela is the landing speed (there is a lot of brake...) and being heavier allows the engine to have a scary low idle; you can really count the blades on low idle for landing!!!!
It's a cool airshow prop too... today the spectators at the field really enjoyed the prop ripping noise (my ears a tad less :P)
