Default Saito 56 3 bladed prop!

Hello, what size is good for a 3 blade saito 56 prop? Or... How do I calculate the conversion from 2 blade to 3 blade size???

first make sure you get a good three blade prop.

drop the size down by one inch. In other words if you would need a 12x7 for a two blad, drop to a 11x7 three blade. I am not saying the best prop on the engine for that plane is a 12x7, thats just a example of how to fig. the new prop size. What ever prop you decide to use for the two blade prop, drop the size down on inch.

The only good three blade prop I know about is Graupner, there may be others.
