    I have been told that the Mezjlik 18x6 is the prop of choice, I just got a hold of one, but won't get to test it out for a while due to business schedule.

    RE: saito 180 prop size

    Recomendation:

    APC 20x8W - minimum 3D prop

    APC 22x10W (repitched to 22x7.5) - Ultimate 3D performace

    APC 20x10W - Pattern F3A

    RE: saito 180 prop size

    You better be running 70% Nitro at 2000 ft BELOW sea level with a 22" prop. I flew 17x8N with my H9 CAP and have an 18x6W, about 9600 RPM with 30% Nitro, OS F plug at less than 1000 ASL with either. The 18x6W seemed to cause much more torque issues on my Ultra Wasp fun fly, so I stayed with the 17x8N. Pulls like crazy.

    Whoa!! Are you sure you're not talking about Moki 2.10? Those props are way too big.
