I was at the field today between 14:00 & 15:00 all on my own , good flying too. There is a dead sheep along the fence line towards the gate from the pits, I saw the farmer so reported this to her. I hope no one had plans for a BBQ Smile .

For 3D type flying you want to aim for a high thrust, and relatively low pitch speed, and that implies using a large diameter, and fine (small) pitch prop, turning relatively slowly.

For a given engine speed (or power) a small diameter/coars pitch prop will give lots of pitch speed, but a low static thrust. A larger diameter/fine pitch prop will give lots of thrust, at the expense of pitch speed. As with all things aeronautical, it is a compromise!

Cheers
Andy

Ahh ok, from memory then the motor you have the 11x6e is the right prop you could go to a 11x4e but in my experiance of these medium size motors they like the pitch,

So your on the right prop mate
