Thanks for the quick 5:30am Sunday morning replys guys.

So on the new plane I built, the stock motor was about a 1400KV on a 1800 3S 20C pack fed via a 18A ESC

Sorry don't know the motors rated Watt specs.

In looking at the prop, it looks like it could be as you described, not to much pitch but kinda wide and light.

I replaced this motor with a Tower Pro, 1600KV 200W 25A and installed a MasterScrew, G/F 3 series, 8x5 prop and am using a 2200 3S 25C pack fed via a Castle Creation, 45amp Phoenix ESC (I know its big but I had it for three years and never used it.)

This "size" prop is what is recommended by the motor manufacturer although if it is that size but a slow prop, I don't know. It just says a APC, 8x4 or 8x5.

Btw the plane is a Hobbico/Flyzone Cessna 182 which is a 37.0 oz/1,050g plane (w/the 1800 pack), 47.5in wing with a 339in wing area.

Also btw that stock prop was 8.5in but I don't know the pitch but in comparing it to the 8x5 MasterScrew, it is easy to see that it is not a 5.

So any comments on any of this and thanks again for the reply's
