That IS our problem Bro....PROPS...or should I say lack of them.

The 7x13's I have from Marcus are GREAT blades...however when you put them on a 45mm spinner they magically become 8x13's. The Monster 1.1 that is coming takes a 60mm spinner so add at least a half an inch.

My dream is a set of high pitched 6's or 6.5's...which puts us in the 7 to 7.5 inch territory with the spinner.

Sooner or later (after this next build) am going to shift attention to making molds and props. Will start by re-pitching APC's and making molds from them...long slow learning process (already started some reading) with lots of frustrations...but it might be worth it in the long run.

QUESTION for ya DownUnder - Do you have the "hard brake" set on the ESC or no brake. I was told awhile back that if you set the brake on the ESC it will be less likely to break the prop on landing. Haven't tried it yet.
