GIPSY MOTH PROPELLER

Our latest propeller under construction is for a DH60 Gipsy Moth.  The aircraft is being re-engined with a Gipsy Major 1 engine which has been modified to run the right way up - cylinders pointing upwards.  The increase in power will make this aircraft much more usable than with the original Wright engine.

Still in the CNC machine - here is a picture of the new wooden propeller which we designed to suit this unique engine and airframe combination.  Note the extra wide tapering hub to match with the cowlings.
