Default Typhoon question

Hello all....Ive been flying glow planes for years but have very little knowledge of electrics. I bought my wife a Typhoon 3D and was wondering if it was ok to use the small prop with the 1000 NimH battery. Book describes the prop usage in a very broad way without saying, "yes you can use it on that battery." Any input would be greatly appreciated.

If your talking about the small prop that came with it, then yes you can. The larger lower pitch one (13.5x7 I think) gives a little more thrust for 3D type stuff, but either prop flies it just fine. I'm still running the stock batteries & have probably equal numbers of flights on both prop's.
Before you fly it, I'd recommend wrapping a few layers of packing tape around the small fin on the underside that the tailwheel bracket attaches to. It will snap off on anything but a graceful landing.

Thanks guys...wife will certainly "feel" the plane better with more forward thrust/speed. We'll try er out tomorrow if the wind here in Moore, Ok would drop below 15 for one day. [:@]

Certainly don't take it out on a windy day for the maiden, but I've flown mine several times in 20MPH wind.

Ya she's got a few flights with the Typhoon and was only a few flights away from coming off the buddybox with her glow trainer...so she should do well. Thx again for the info...Ill tell the guy at our LHS because he was telling every single person this that bought the Typhoon.
