    Hello Guys!
    Found your site last night while looking for info on our latest project.I've
    been an aircraft mechanic for the past 30 years and love wrenching on
    everything.Recently our shop was contracted to assemble a FlugWerk
    190"kit".Our "kit" has MANY parts missing,we are fabricating a bunch
    but are in need of a few big parts...The"kit" comes with a Chinese copy
    of the Russian Asch-82T engine(Huosai HS-7) and we are looking for a
    prop and exhaust system for it.Can build the exhaust,cant do a prop
    though!FlugWerk sells a prop,but their delivery times are sometimes
    years away..We are thinking of a prop from an IL-14 or Avia AV-14,
    (yea I know these are 4 blade!),but our project is to be a flyer,not a
    looker..Have contacted PZL of Poland as they used to build contract
    Asch-82 engines,but no reply yet.Can anyone out there help us?
    THANKS!! John

    Hi John;

    Why are you dealing with Flug for the prop? - the prop for their kit is made by MT - I've dealt with them in the past and I think at the most you'll have a 6 month wait on their prop.

    Hi John:

    MT only makes the blades,Flug supplies the hub.We contacted MT early on
    in this project.Its a huge project as many parts do not fit,we've had to
    fabricate many gear parts,kit stuff binds badly.Been in contact with
    several other builders around the country and we are working together
    to get these beauties in the air,can post a bunch of pics and links too.

    Very Cool! Have you tried Aviation Classics? 775-972-5540 They're at Stead Airport, mainly deal with Soviet jets, might be able to get you info on a suitable prop.

    Hi John, and another welcome from a cold and snowy (by our standards!) England.
    Great bit of kit you've got there, looking forward to seeing more!
    Terry.

    Thanks for the greeting guys!We also have a full scale Jurca 190 project thats
    the boss mans toy.It will use the P&W 1830.Hope to set up the gear system
    like the TA152 with locking hydraulic actuators,if we can find some at a good
    price.The Lear has a good looking one,but I fear they might be a bit pricey!
