Default RE: Extreme Flight 87" Yak 54 - Build & Fly

For what it's worth. I tried the 24x8 menz wood prop. I didnt like it at all for 3D. It loaded the engine too much and didn't spool up fast enough for getting out of trouble. I'd be happy to sell my drilled and perfectly ballanced 22x8 and 24x8 Menz props. I'm using a stock muffler, maybe they work better if the engine is piped, lord only knows
Thanks for the info, I was afraid of that. I really like the extra downline braking (and thrust) from the 23x8 and thought the 24x8 might give me more of the same. Just wasn't sure if it would be too much prop to spool up quickly enough. I also have a friend with a DA50 on his Yak that was considering the same. I think we better stick to the 23x8 NX.

Thx,

Tom
