Default OS 160 DPM edge 540

Im looking for a good 3d prop for this combo. Im spinning an 18x8w APC. I hover at little over 3/4 and have really slow pull out.

Thanks
Chris

I have this plane and engine combo and use a Mejzlik 18-8 for best vertical performance. I use a carbon gear and no spinner to reduce weight and get acceptable pull out of a hover. The cool thing is that with the engine using so much power to hover (3/4) it is easy to regulate the height. It takes like two clicks to start to go up in a hover and it is easy to learn how to manage the throttle. Unlike some other setups I have where only one click of throttle moves the plane up from a hover (too sensitive).

Oh yeah, the O.S. 160 doesnt make enough power to shoot this plane out of a hover. Mine weighs right at 12#'s 13oz, what does yours weigh?
