I appreciate the wisedom. I have 2 issues, ground clearance and my plnae is 123.4 grams tail heavy. The engine is a OS 64LA on a Nexstar 60 Select. I am figuring that in the snow the clearence will really be an issue, and, if I am going to swap out the spinner to a metal one (to reduce need for lead weights for balance) I might as well try a 3 blade prop too.
As I run chainsaws for a living, I have always wanted a tach. Hmmm, this sounds like a great excuse to get one of those too!
