Performance Aero are very excited to announce that we have teamed up with WhirlWind Propellers. We are now an authorised Australian distributor for these fantastic products.
About WhirlWind Propellers
WhirlWind Propellers were established in 1995 to meet the growing demand for composite constant speed aviation, airboat and wind propeller systems. Fulfilling its goal of manufacturing affordable high-performance propeller systems, Whirl Wind offers a complete line of standard and aerobatic constant speed propellers that are light weight, durable, and best of all, made in the USA.
About W530 Composite Blades
The WhirlWind W530 all-composite blades are designed to fit the existing V530 propeller hub on M-14P engine powered aircraft. The W530 blades have an updated blade twist distribution, new airfoils and a unique profile to give improved take-off, climb, and cruise performance with smooth quiet operation. The unique Whisper Tip™ scimitar blade planform reduces aerodynamic transonic drag, increases efficiency and reduces prop noise. This means more performance for your airplane, and less noise from the propeller.
The W530 has an increased diameter of 98.5” (250cm) which translates to better climb performance.
Smooth & Powerful Operation
The first characteristic the pilot will notice is how much more smooth the propeller operation is compared to the old wood V530 blades. This is possible because the composite blades are manufactured from WhirlWind’s patented design & manufacturing process using advanced aerospace thermo-set composites. Every W530 blade is exactly the same in dimension, twist and contour. Thermo-set composite graphite material will ensure the blades are structurally and dimensionally stable for life regardless of environmental conditions.
Through intelligent engineering and the use of high-tech composite materials, the WhirlWind W530 blades are 6 lbs lighter than the original wood blades. The W530 blade has a flush bonded electroformed nickel leading edge that provides superior fit and durability unmatched by any other leading edge method. The nickel leading edge shield wraps around the tip providing maximum abrasion protection as well as for a low drag tip design.
