Bolly Optima Series Three

ser31Bolly Optima Series Three

OUR BOS 3 SERIES Also meets the ASTM F2506-10 FOR LSA Aircraft.
The Bolly Optima Series 3 props are (ground) adjustable allowing the pitch to be altered, using a 38mm shank ( 1.5″ ). Performance is

supreme, with silky smoothness at high efficiency levels.

Pitch:

Unlike our other BOS propellers, the Series 3 are ground adjustable to the required pitch and engine load. We have optimised the design to allow for this. As with all props they are at their most efficient at one optimal pitch setting, and it is this setting that we quote. The less a prop is changed from this the better the performance, although we have customers reporting excellent performance out to 7 degrees outside this parameter.

Hubs:

All BOS3 Hubs are CNC machined from only the best aviation grade 7075 T6 series alloy plate (not a cheap casting) and treated for corrosion resistance (hence the gold colour). The hubs feature a blade grip pattern that is far superior to a smooth surface, it has more grip surface area and the blade pitch is held rigid when the hub is tightened.
Hubs to suit the 75mm PCD bolt pattern, ie many Rotax, Hirth etc are available in 2B, 3B and 4B.
We also have 2B and 3B hubs for most other common bolt patterns such as Rotax C box (100mm PCD), some Subaru’s (4 inch / 101.6mm PCD) and to suit Rotax 912 / 914 (old and new with rear face drive stud holes).

Notes:

Overall propeller diameter may vary from hub to hub. For example a 72″ blade may vary from 70″ (Bolly 912 hub), 71.5″ (2B or 3B in 75mm PCD hub) or 72″ (in Bolly 4B hub or some hubs by other manufacturers).

News : Latest overspeed testing has gone to mach 1.01 tip speed (for proving the DuraTuff leading edge).

The Bolly BOS3 68 x 58 (left and right hand versions) in our standard hub (66″ 3B prop) have been certified for use in the Airborne XT series of Trikes, with Rotax 912 or 582. This entailed, amongst other things, over speed testing at mach .97 tip speed using every bit of power from a 200hp engine – an awesome experience that has given us enormous confidence in our product. And then there was the 10 ton pull test + more.

Trike with Rotax 582 3.47 gearbox using 68″ R/H blades in a BOS3 – 3B hub A perfect combination on Airborne Edge machines, winning rave reviews from the many who are using this combo.

Extensive Trike testing has shown our props are suitable on all Rotax 912 / 582 / 503 powered trikes from slow to fast Trike Types. Ring or email for full details.

Sapphire. The most recent tests have been the BOS3 53 x 50 SR as a 3B prop, (trimmed slightly in diameter to 60″) for use on the Sapphire. Initial feedback is
exceptionally good. We are waiting for a full report from Steve Dumnsey of Sapphire Aircraft (03 54397168).

Savannah / Lightwing etc with 100hp Rotax 912S is great when using the BOS3 72 x 58 S R blades in a BOS3-3B hub. True size 70″ 3B, or alternatively if ground
clearance or cruise speed are priorities – the same but using the BOS3 68 x 58 SR blades (true size = 66″ 3B).

The Cobra Arrow 108hp Subaru belt drive is using 72 x 60 S R blades in a BOS3 – 3B hub, pitched up. Awesome performance, we credit the prop, Tom credits the airframe. Both win.

The 72 x 60 S Left or Right is proving to be excellent on many different applications, the most common being Subaru engined machines such as Foxcon Terrier or Gyro’s.
