Default Best 3-blade prop for DA-85

Hi,

I'm putting together a new (to me) plane (40% Wildhare Giles) and am thinking about using a 3 bladed prop. Looking for any information regarding the best 3-blade prop(s) for 3D type flying. I will also be using a ProFlow canister as well.

Thanks for the help!

Cant go wrong with Mezjlik, but Xoar makes nice wood 3blades, depends on your wallet.

22X10 Mezjlik on my G-62's, 22X12 mezjlik on my Fox 4.2 Stuka, and I have two Xoar wood 22X12 one counter rotating on my Fox 4.2 powered P-38 (about 80% complete). I have a Xoar Simitar 24X10 two blade on my GT-80 powered 1/3 scale Fokker D-VIII and a Xoar 24X10 Lance two blade on my GT-80 powered 1/3 scale Super Cub. Both brands work well, it just depends on your application and wallet.

Thanks for the advise, but I was trying to find what 3-blades people have had success with on the DA-85 and not what brands are best.
