Most Q-500 type planes, flying with the TT40 pro and stock muffler....... fly in the 100 to 110 mph range with a 9x6 up front. Stays nearer to 90-100 mph with the 10x6.

The OS46 should be about the same

We run the .46 fx up here on Predators and other Q500's.

We don't use the 10x6 prop, but use props like the 8.8 x 8.75, 8.8 x 9, and 8.8 x 9.25.

We have consistent radar readings between 120 and 130 mph on the course.
