Default 4D planes? Should they be over 6oz?

Will a 6oz plane work with I guess a heaver prop system like used for 4D? These are my lightweight planes. Thanks Ron

Well...you really shouldn't put one on the BUG because it's built to be a SLOW LIGHT plane. And VPP is pretty heavy. I would only recomend VPP for about a 9-12 oz plane. And by the way, do you have any more pix or some vids of your bug? I'm thinking of getting one>

Bug is really a great almost indestructible plane. Great for learning and advanced. Here is my new blue one. Ron

Cool, thanks for the quick reply (I was almost certain this thread was "dead"). I'll probably be ordering a blue BUG some time this week. I'll try and post some pix. Are there any mods or tips you would recommend for this plane?
