apc 18/8w is too much prop.....18/6w would be maximum...that's a heavy prop that is hard to spin up quickly though. keep it light as possible and you should not have any problems hovering with this combo

The smaller the pitch on the prop the better (within reason).

About 45 degrees deflection on the rudder, 35 on elevator and ailerons, and balanced at around 35% MAC. (According to an article by Quiequie Somenzini (sp?).)

Go to an APC 17x6.
That is the propeller I used for years.
