Warp Drive Propellers
Warp Drive Propellers, 2 blade, 3 blade, hubs and accessories.
Warp Drives Advanced Composite Carbon Fiber propeller has a structural strength near that of metal propellers. Because of the stiffness achieved by using carbon fibers, the prop will do very little coning (bending forward) under power.
Proper fiber placement allows the prop to flex torsionally for maximum cruise efficiency. The strongly fixed position of the blades along with optimum torsional performance translates into more thrust than conventional propellers.
The interior structure of this new propeller is all carbon fiber - no fiberglass, no foam, no filler - an all carbon fiber matrix combined with top quality hybrid epoxies. Carbon fiber is one of the strongest building materials available. When properly engineered, carbon fiber can achieve the strength and stiffness of a metal part, as demonstrated by its wide range of industrial and aerospace uses.
Warp Drive Propeller Blade Types
All propellers and blade types are available with Stainless Steel Leading Edge protection as an option at additional cost.
1. Standard Advanced Composite Carbon FIber Blades: The Carbon Fiber Standard Blades can be used on Rotax, Arrow, VW and similar engines.
2. HIgh Horse Power Advanced Composite Carbon Fiber Blades: The Carbon Fiber HP Blades will be required for use on Lycoming, Continental and some auto conversion engines.
Warp Drive Propeller Hubs
Warp Drive offers two types of hubs of our propellers. First is our Standard Hub. This is an assembly of anodized aluminum plates and composite clamping blocks. It accommodates standard and custom hub bolt patterns of up to 3 1/8".
The second type of hub is the HP Hub. This hub consists of two halves machined from solid aluminum. It is the same weight as the standard hub assembly and can accommodate Rotax, Arrow, VW, SAE I Continental, SAE II Lycoming and custom bolt patterns.
To order a propeller please give us a call so that we can ensure you receive the proper propeller for your engine and application.
