Tom Fey and the Righter 2-GS-17
Text and Photos by Tom Fey

AEHS Members get one another into trouble.

Tom Fey has always had a soft spot for contra-rotating propellers. He has collected a huge amount of text, pictures and video on the subject, and has presented a few talks about contra-props at AEHS Conventions.

Engine collector and restorer Robert Kammlott knows of Tom's weakness. When Robert learned that the New England Air Museum (NEAM) was going to sell one of itsRighter 2-GS-17 contra-rotating engine from aRadioplane OQ-2 target drone, he just HAD to tell Tom. Thus began the story of Tom and the Righter, which will be presented here as a work diary.
