Yakovlev "Yak 52" Propeller Blade

 This particular blade is from a Russian Yak 52TD and it’s one of only 2 Yak blades we’ve ever come across so we think its pretty unusual.  At some point this propeller has been damaged in a prop strike but that just adds to its history and we like it just the way it is. 

     This ones not available for polishing but can be mounted on a base  for an extra charge if required. 

 

A descendant of the single-seat competition aerobatic Yakovlev Yak-50, the all-metal Yak-52 is powered by a 268 kW (360 hp) Vedeneyev M14P  nine-cylinder radial engine. 

Specifically designed to serve as a military trainer, the development of the aircraft incorporates a number of features to be found on the early postwar fighters: notably the cockpit tandem layout (instrument panel, seat design, cockpit opening system), tail design, tricycle landing gear, fuselage mixed construction (monocoque with steel tube construction), inner flaps, controls position, access panels on sides of the fuselage, even the location of the radio antena and overall dimensions of the airplane, which extensively match the Yakovlev Yak-17 UTI jet fighter trainer (NATO code name Magnet).

The aircraft has inverted fuel and oil systems permitting inverted flight for as long as two minutes. The engine drives a two-bladed counter-clockwise rotating, variable pitch, wood and fibreglass laminate propeller
