Default Saito 100 & GP Shoestring speed???

I was wondering if any of you are running a saito 100 in the GP Shoestring? What size prop & pitch to get some speed out of this 4 stroke.
Thanks
Scott

Default Go fast & turn left.

I am running a Saito 100 with the Shoe, and it does like it.
Have ran 14/6, 14/8 props and have a 13/10 on it now. I think that is the combo I am going to stay with.

Default shoestring OS 61 FX

Been flying my shoestring with the OS 61 FX and turns a 13 x 6 APC at unknown RPM. Will measure next time out.

Plenty of power but not unlimited vertical. The clean lines on this plane make it fly very well on the 61 fx.

What RPM are you guys getting with the 13x10 on the 100 4 strokers.

typical RPM for the shoestring with OS 61 FX turning APC 13x6 is 10600.

Crashed it in fall 2000 and rebuilt it this winter.

Interested to see how she flies with the 3-4 oz additional repair weight this spring.
