Default 46FX runnning a 3-Blade Prop

Hi,

Would a 10x6 3 Blade on the 46fx be alright? What is the most stiff prop that can be bought, a JZ?

Skymac,

A 10x6 3-blade prop really isn't a suitable prop for your O.S. Max .46 FX engine. We normally run a 10x7 2-blader, so the 3-blade prop will add a noticeable load.

Sincd 3-blade props really aren't particularly efficient in our small 2-stroke engines, we'd strongly suggest you use a 2-blade prop for flying, and only use a 3-blade prop for display.

Also, there are a LOT more 2-blade props available so that you can fine-tune the performance of your model.

You can try the 10x6 to see how it works, especially if you're putting too much power on the model.

Since we've not done much running at all with three-blade props, we really don't have much information on this.
