Default Saito 150 3 plade prop

On my Saito 150 with a Grapner 16x8 I only get 7100 on open exaust . 6800 with muffler. I sur could use a little more power. We fly at 6400 ft elev. and off or water. Thanks Rich

A 16/8 2 bladed prop is standard on a 180, 16/8 3 blade is way to much prop for a 150, I would suggest a 2 bladed prop if you want max performance in the 8000-9000 rpm ready to fly. 15/8 3 blade would work as well, but is not quite as efficient.
