The 200C / 400C Series systems consists of carbon fiber blades with nickel leading edge erosion shields, aluminum hub and a composite spinner. Plus, this propeller is also counter-weighted to prevent engine overspeed. This propeller can be flown in rain and off unapproved airstrips.
Performance and Quality: The 200C / 400C Series propellers have been designed to maximize the aerobatic performance of your airplane! The exceptional performance is derived from advanced engineering developments, including the use of our latest airfoils. The 200C Series is a two-blade hydraulic constant speed propeller system designed for aircraft using the Lycoming IO-360 engine (180 - 265 hp). The 400C Series is a three-blade hydraulic constant speed propeller system designed for aircraft using the Lycoming IO-540 engine (260 - 325 hp).
Whirl Wind has made significant developments in the construction of the carbon composite propeller blades ensuring a strong, light and durable propeller system. The blade twist has been optimized for aerobatic performance, and the wide chord allows for more low-speed thrust and braking on those long down lines.
Also available for the Lycoming IO-540 engine is the 400 Rocket, which is a three-blade 78” swept-tip constant speed hydraulic propeller.
