I'm not very experienced with what makes or breaks certain flight characteristics, but from what I experienced, the power wasn't as good as the speed with the carbon prop. When attempting slow speed high alpha passes with the carbon prop, it seemed to not want to fly slow nor keep the nose up doing so as opposed to the the 4-site prop which definitely felt it would hang from the prop easier.

The Vapor wasn't designed to be a fast flyer, but having the power to do loops (inside and outside), vertical climbs and the ability to pull out from low to ground "dumb thumb" maneuvers, makes it more enjoyable.

If you want to maintain slow flight and still be able to do tricks, I would rate the props as:

1. 4-site prop
2. Stock Vapor prop
3. BSDMicro carbon prop

If others have experience with these, please chime in.
