    I know there are people running glow props on their electrics - depending on power and application. The lower power/slower electrics generally run better on the electric props. Others, running more voltage possibly, seem to do better on a glow prop.

    Bottom line I think anything running 3 cell or more might benefit from a little experimenting. I don't think any hard rule regarding which will work best is going to hold up well.

    Lighter weight for the electrics. The lighter built props can't handle the power pulses of the glow, gas engines.

    And when you start putting as much or more rpm into a prop vs its nitro brother, the electric / thinner props will flex losing there performance, or even brake.
