hey i was wondering if someone can tell me their fav prop on the .82 for 3d?
I am currently using a 14x6 APC sport, but am considering buying a 14x4 wide, 14x5 sport and a 15x4 wide.
Am i wasting money with any of these? would a 15x4 load up engine too much?
Maybe 14x4 is just not fast enough?
Any input would be greatly appreiciated!

I know it would have been discussed already but dont wanna read 400 plus pages! yep, lazy!
I like the APC 14x4W much better than the 15x4 on my .82.

Edited to add....

It might boil down to how each prop works on YOUR plane, with YOUR flying style. The only real way to know is to try them to see how you like them.

I just missed the quick spool-up of the 14x4W.

Better to wear away and replace the screw than to wear away and replace the expensive barrel.

Ken6ppc What plane are you flying with the Saito 82? I have invested heavy in APC props mostly the W lately there great! They don't take a ground strike but there great. The MAS has several different props you can get the same low end torque out of and they do take a ground strike or two maybe, much cheaper. Master Airscrew "Scimitar" 14x6 6.62 on Tower the APC 14x4W 11.99 I flew in Hamilton OH. every now and then at the GCRCC or something like that!

GCRCC? That is HOME to me! (Greater Cincinnati Radio Controlled Club) I also fly at HAWKS club in Joyce Park.

I am using the 14x4W and the .82 on my Fusion and my Showtime 50. I also have an .82 on a Pulse, but it doesn't have enough ground clearance for a 14" prop. On that one, I use a 13x8 MAS. It isn't a 3D plane anyway, and I fly it faster.

And, what do you mean, "ground strike" with a prop? I have NEVER done that..... [sm=red_smile.gif]

Yep - You've definitely been here! I blame those guys for me destroying LOTS of planes, while trying to imitate what they do.

Hi there

I made a new home for my Saito 150GK, its a Graupner Sea Fury with 1660mm span - flying weigth with fuel around 4,8 kg. Its made for the OS FS120-P, but the Saito 150 is actually lighter :-). I use a Turbo header muffler, and my last test gave me 8500 rpm on a APC 17x8 Narrow and 16% nitro.

I want the model to be fast, and still able to do big loopings - What prop should I use ????

I have a Seagull Edge 540 46 ARF and I am not sure about installing a Saito 100 or a Saito 125. I want to fly IMAC. I live 2600 meters above sea level. Wich one would be the best engine?

Looking for some help. I've looked on horizon's website for the barrel retention screw for the Saito 125 and can't find it. I hope they sell just the screw. Thanks

Have been looking at maybe purchasing one

does the 1.15 produce more power than an OS FS120?
anyone know?

I know the 1.15 is a lot lighter and according to the specs they have the same prop range

any suggestions for 3 and 4 blade props for the 1.15?

am mounting it in a BH Spitfire
Specs say wingspan 71" weight 8.8 lbs.
Not sure if they mean 8.8 all up or just the airframe. Not a wole lot of info available.

The three-bladed 14x9 seems the best for my 1.25.
I'd imagine the 14x7 would be good for the 1.15.

Still hoping to hear from someone that used 3 blades on a .91, but there only seems to be two choices, 12x8 or 13x8, so I might as well buy them both.

That's the best sounding R/C engine I've ever heard.
