My own experiments have shown that the 14x4.7 APC's were the same duration as the S800 Carbon. The only slight loss was on the Graupners.which was offset by better stability than both. It is a tricky test to perform as any turbulence has quite an effect on the results. On the test rig the current drawn is pretty much the same for any given lift value. If duration is your goal then the more dia. you run the more efficient it will be, But at the expense of stability. If you want the best AP platform I would run a 14" prop.
Yesterdays big shoot was done in very windy conditions, The director said after seeing the footage that the last time he saw that level of raw footage it was from a AS350 Eurocopter fitted with a Cineflex.
Perfect stability and no vibration artifacts.
