Prop for an OS 1.08 on the CG Extra300
 
I am placing an OS 1.08 on my new Goldberg Extra300...... I want to get the best speed and vertical combination without burning out the engine. I like to fly at higher throttle settings and want to get the best combo for this engine. Any suggestions? Thanks.

A 15x8 would be my first choice. You might also want to try a 14x10 if you want a little more speed, or a 15x6 for more acceleration. All APC brand. I fly a GB Ultimate Bipe with the ASP 108 using a 14x10 and the performance is very good. We went to a 15x8 on my friend's Ultimate with an OS 108 to slow it down a little for him. Also works well.

Running a 16x6 here. I don't dare fly straight and level for more than a short run at full throttle, has excellent vertical.
I do run a Perry pump driven by case pressure.
