Surprisingly, the factory prop seems to outperform the 5030 in my plane and my flight-conditions. That was definitely not the case with my V1 Sbach, although I know that Bobly & a few others reported that the factory prop outperformed the 5030 in their V1s. I'll let you guys be the judge, once I post the videos. Also, the Hyp 500 is definitely faster than the TP 325, but I think the TP 325 provides better vertical. The CG wasn't bad with the 500 all the way back, but I could definitely feel the extra weight during aerobatic maneuvers and also on approach. However, it will be a great choice for windy days or endurance flying.
Just another reason why I have such high hopes for the new Hyp (2S) 400.
Hyperion says my long overdue B/O should ship on Friday.
You should have one to test before the snow flies.
