With the Xoar 12x9 at 7000 rpm you are making only 2.88 lbs of thrust and .46 hp. Put a 12x7 on that same engine and you'll be making 5.31 lbs of thrust and .896 hp at 9300 rpm richened for flight.

Hope this helps in some way.

Helps in a big way Lonnie. Thanks.
I knew one of you guys would pick up on that quick and make some suggestions I wouldn't have to research myself LOL.
I usually just use props that bring my Saitos to between 8500 and 9000 tops.
If that won't fly it I usually take a bigger Saito off the shelf and bolt It on.
I just don't like to sound they produce above that and conservative rpms make em last longer.
Just opinion there, just me.
Thanks Lon
