Default OS 55 AX set-up for an Extreme Flight RC Edge 540

I am about to purchase a NIB OS 55 for my .40 profile fun fly. I have one of these flying with a Saito .72 which is an enjoyable combo, but i want to try something new. Is the Coke can muffler a preferable change from the stock muffler or would a Tower Muffler work just as well? If i should go with the coke can, will someone attach some instructions on how to make one of these? Also Propeller choices: I love the Xoar props, what size should I use for 3D or should I use another prop entirely. Thank you for any and all of your advice and Happy Flying!

http://www.spadtothebone.net/SPAD/Mufflers/ for the Mousse can mufflers. Should give you an idea anyway. For a prop, I don't know, just a somewhat large diameter low pitch is typical.

For the AX55, use the stock muffler with the baffle removed, APC 12.25 x 3.75 prop and 15% fuel. Perfect combo on my profile.

PylonRacr - That sounds like a relatively inexpensive combo! This engine is probably going to be a hell of a hot-rod in this bird.

You will like it. You do have to use the throttle, but the top speed is fairly low with that prop.

I have ran 12x4 and 12.25x3.75 APC's on my other profile planes, and always have a .46 2 stroke attached to them.
