Flew it today with an 18x6 Zoar and it turned 18600rpm. The Edge is about 13lbs or more and with this prop it pulled out of a hover OK but not 3Dish enough.

Thanks for the info. This OS 160 is going into another plane as the Edge 'expired' today due to battery issues.

p.s. check battery voltage again after working on plane for a while.
