Default what prop for my 3W-75usi

I am running a 3W-75 usi on my 30% carden cap. I have a 24-10 3W on it right now. I am thinking about going to a 26-10 possible mejlick does this sound feesable. Or maybe a 26-8 something.

What RPMs you getting with the 24-10. If you can keep the RPMs at about 6200 rpm or more things would be fine I think. The Mejzlik spins a bit faster than the 3W prop so I think a 26-10 would be fine, for 3D the 26-8 might be even better if you can get one.

Heaven is a nice cool summers day at the flying club with a few good friends around, I know, I was there. I will deal with the death thing later!

with the 24-10 I am getting around 6200, I am thinking of going to a 26-8 mejzlick for quick spool up and better vertical.

You can't go wrong with the mejzlik 26X10 on your 75-ius.

I started with a 3W 24x10 for break in, and now using a Mezjlik 26x10. Works great. I think you'll like the combo.
