How can I get mine to go over 150MPH. I have a OS.46 with a pipe on it now, and its fast, but I dont know how fast, anyone have a idea? I have a 9x8 prop on it, have also used a 10x7.

John

Provide some additional data on your model.

Which OS 46? What rpm? What pipe? What fuel? APC prop?

Default More pitch or RPM...

Bout the only way..you might try one of the APC pylon props like the 8.8X8.75...they have narrow blades and ought to let your engine still rev good and give a little more speed. APC also makes 8X8, 8x9, 8X10, props...an 8" diameter will fly a Dust, just a little trickier to launch.

i have an s.t 51 on mine with the same pipe and usually a graupner 9.5 x 5 prop and was clocked at 147 at two thirds throttle! also am running 10% byrons. only problem is it is so fast that if i snap it into a turn or vertical it will literally disintegrate! i am now on my second as that happened to the first.---henry
