As was noted, the DLE 30 needs more prop than the APC 18 X 6W

Also people tend to use Beechwood and not plastic props

The wood props weigh less and tend to break on a ground strike and no damage the engine.

The wood props also let the engine spool up quicker!

Right after you try a Zinger you'll know why they are mostly used for stiring paint, not flying a large model airplane.

Zinger has a lowish prop constant, so use a bit more pitch than you are used to. They perform fine then.
