Default Mercury Cat Set up

I'm getting a Mercury Cat, and I've never had a Cat, so need a little help and ideas on set up and stuff, the Cat is 42 x 16 inches in size I will be running a standard Zenoah 26PUM with tuned pipe, what size props should i use as i have a collection i have acquired over the years, and not sure what they are I just know the sizes ? also turn fins, do they get used on a cat ?? i have a brand new set never used, and was wondering ???? Once i get it running right i will be tuning my 2nd Zenoah, and hopefully have some real speed & fun

The Mercury Cat goes by 2 other names that I know of and I've got one, the Falcon 41. It also goes by Chimera (sp.?).
Mine's in the middle of a rebuild now with an RCMK R-254 being dropped in it.
As far as props go you can try a 6717/3 or a Octura X-670 or ABC 7016 for starters.

There are at least one or two other threads on this boat, do a search for Falcon 41, lots of tips in those.
