ZDZ 60 Blueline Props - Advice wanted
I have just got in larger aircraft/petrol engines and have a ZDZ 60 blueline (JMB Muffler) turning a Menz 24x8 on a Comp. Arf 2.3m extra, engine has had about an hour or so running. It fly's the plane really well, for my style of flying but what prop options do I have? At the moment with a 24x8 menz the engine is doing about 6200rpm, there's plenty of pull, not unlimited vertical but then it is still fairly new. What sort of rpm should I be aiming for when it's had a bit more running, does this engine need to rev a bit more as I notice in the zdz info that max rpm is 8200, should I be aiming for close to 7000 rpm.
If I wanted to go for a carbon prop is there a rule of thumb when converting from wood or is it trial and error.
