For those builders who would like a true climb propeller for the first few flights, rather than the cruise propeller provided with the kits, we have created a 42” diameter, 27” pitch climb propeller and will make it available as follows: with a deposit by the builder of $150.00, we will send the special prop to the builder for his initial flights. When he returns the prop to us in good shape, prepaid freight, we will return his complete deposit.
We have been flying the Revmaster R800 Citroen Engine on 77Q. The engine runs well and is very smooth. As originally configured the exhaust ports point forward causing very large, dragy bumps on the cowling. By changing the camshaft we were able to reverse the heads. This allowed a new cowl that is much more streamlined. Two versions of the Citroen are being tested. One is rated at 27 hp, the other dynoâs 31.5. We have the âBig Boreâ installed in 77Q, our Quickie prototype. If no further problems develop we plan to bring the Citroen powered Quickie to Oshkosh.
