3 blade da 100l

Picked up a 35% dalton with a da100l, cans and mejzlik 25x12s 3 blade. Was wondering if a 26x12n 3 blade would give me a little less load on the engine, plane is on the heavy side.

Thanks guys!

I'm guessing it would load even more. I ran the 25x12s on my DA120 for awhile. Nice prop on either with a 28# plane.

I read this in an earlier thread PE Reivers said but there was not much more on it.
I think not that many people have used both props in comparison.
My preliminary guess is that the S prop puts a 30% larger load than the N-prop.
putting your numbers in my calculator, running both props at 7000 rpm I get 14 hp for the 26x12N and 15.5 hp for the 25x12S.
adjusting for hp, I can see that the 26x12N pulls harder all the way form static to top speed, due to it's larger diameter.
I would need mass distribution data to predict spool-up between the two, but methinks the 26x12 wins.
