I use a Xoar 14x4 or 14x6. Second choice is a 14x6 MAS S-2 (what's on the plane in my avatar).
It spins the 14x6 at 9500+ on 25% fuel.

The props you listed would be my choice for a Saito 72.

APC - 14 x 6 on the lil 82
Zoar - 14 x 5, the Zoars tend to put more load with fatter wingtips than the APC, I like the 14x5 or even the 13 x 6.

I used the APC 14x4W on my 82. I used it on 2 different 3D planes. It worked well enough for me especially on my Profile. I would try out a few of the ones listed here to see which ones suits your style the best.

I use a Zinger Pro series 15x4 on mine. It has a lot of low end grunt with this prop. The 14x4W APC needs to be turned up to get the same pull.

Master Airscrew has some nice scimitar wood props 14x6 or 13x6. Also I like the 13x6 plastic one for all around durability and performance. It revs a little higher but it gives more instant throttle and that's what I like.

The 14x4 ones give you more instant thrust, but they are very limited in speed and don't give as much air over the tail so maneuvers requiring throwing the tail around tend to suffer with the finer pitch props.

Xoar 14x6 if you don't dork your planes and you are profficient at 3D. If you are still learning, MAS Scimitar 14x6-these will take major abuse....I have tried lots of props on .82's. The APC 14x4 does good too for all out hovering and thrust only manuevers.

Sounds like you got a bad one. "my friend"

You definitely need to balance them. They are notorious for being out of balance, and of course the wood ones will vary. But the plastic ones are really good.

How about suggesting something yourself?

Xoar and APC wide version have been said, in regards to Joes statment so I shouldn't have to same them over again


how about this buy same size black master air screw and a APC and fly them both

I'm am sure master air screw is vary strong . and APC isn't but APC is great for thrust and offers a wide version. the wood Xoar prop is going to be the " fastst " spoil time and better thrust then then MAS all these props are cheap enough o keep a selection in the flight box any way .

14x6 APC
Tried the 15x4 MA wide blade. First try at 3D. No fun at all. put the APC on and had a blast! 2" snow this morning. Send some of that global warming our way.
