The reality is that a 2 blade prop produces better thrust then a multi. That being said, he picked the worst prop he could get his hands on. An APC electric prop may have saved the airplane. I will never understand guys who install an IC prop on an electric.

^^^^^^^^^ That's what I was thinking. The only reason 3 or 4 or blade props were used on full scale is for ground or fuse clearance. They look better on a scale bird but that's the only plus.
