Default Zoomer flight reports & tips needed

Hey all, I just bought the Zoomer with the 15% wing for some fun. I was wondering if anyone has any flight reports or building tips. Hey I was also wondering if anyone has a prop suggestion for the OS.50sx? OS says that its good to 17000rpm. I bought a 8.75" by 9" APC.

The Zoomer is sort of a cross-breed between a Q-500 and a Formula 1. Designed for an event called "Animal 500", this no-hold barred speed design is incredibly popular with sport flyers and speed fanatics alike. It is fully aerobatic, very smooth and precise, and it slows down nicely for a gentle, smooth landing. The Zoomer is available with your choice of wing! The tapered wing is designed for high speeds and racing. Also available with our 12% thick semi-symmetrical and 15% thick full-symmetrical Sport wings - constant chord - for improved slow speed and better aerobatic capabilities. The semi-kit features a high quality, light weight epoxy-glass fuselage, along with precision cut wing cores. If you're looking to go fast or fly an aerobatic sport plane that really grooves, then this kit is for you.

Basic Kit Includes: epoxy-glass fuselage, foam wing cores, and plans.
