100 Series Propeller


Hydraulic Propeller Governors

GovenorA propeller governor is required to control the blade pitch of hydraulic constant speed propellers. Once set, the governor automatically and continuously changes the propeller blade pitch to maintain a constant engine speed (RPM).

A standard propeller requires oil pressure to increase pitch, whereas a counter-weighted aerobatic propeller requires oil pressure to decrease pitch (increases RPM).
