Heck ya Radfordc! I love the xyz 53 in mine. That motor rips and has run like a dream (since I had the ignition replaced). Just make sure you give the motor some right thrust, 1 degree of down...

JFX vs ZOAR 22x8

I was curious if anybody has done a static pull test to compare how zoar props pull versus Jfx props. I'm not looking for rpm tests here folks, I'm looking for lbs of thrust. Thanks!
