Default diamond dust

I just order a diamond dust and was wondering what which one of these engines would work the best for this aircraft. I have a Y.S. 45 side ex. a 36 magnum and a 46 fx with a pipe. Any feed back would help greatly.

I'd take the pipe from the OS and use it on the YS..but that's just me.

Default 46 works ok

I am flying my new DD with a 46fx on a pipe and it is fun and quick, but not fast. Getting ready to install a ducted fan motor on pipe to have a ton more fun. I found so far that a 8.5x7 apc pulls it the best. but am going to try a few more props before I make the engine swap. The YS 45 should turn up more the the fx. BAD ANDY

I JUST BUILT ONE OF THESE PUPPIES OVER THE WEEKEND AND FLEW IT FOR THE FIRST YESTERDAY. I HAVE 46FX WITH PIPE AND RAN A 9X8 PROP.....I TELL YOU.....ITS FAST. I CHANGED UP THE SERVO INSTALATION FOR BOTH ELEVON AND THROTTLE(CLEANER LOOK). I PLAN TO PROP CHANGE TO SEE WHICH IS BETTER AND FASTER.
