Hello. I can ship USPS. The ultra light is 72". The 35-70 pitch is very unusual, but I can do that. Changing the drive takes work, but normally we would up the prop rpm and use the stock pitch. How are things setup now?

ya.... thats what I have been running on it, the 35-70 pitch & it worked fine for the last 400 hours. the first couple years it was ground adjustable but the last 10 or so I've had the electric pitch change motor on it. when I first built the craft it had the flatter pitch blades & it wouldn't hardly move off its own shadow, they only lasted a couple months & I bought the high pitch blades. anyway... is that pitch in stock or special order?

I'll check.
The original pulley ratio must have been wrong.

ya... it sucked... I have suspicions why. I changed pulleys a couple times. 15 years in the rear view mirrors now... no big deal

I'm ready to order up that prop. I looked your page for props & I only see one ultralight prop number listed. I did not see any way to be sure I am ordering the higher pitch.

Just add a note to the order. I'm not sure I need a new item for the site as this is the first in 20 years.
