If you're after a little more 'oomph' then I'd try a 7x6, not an 8x4 or 8x5. You'll find that the 8" props will give more off the mark but top out early, whereas the 7" props will lag a little at the start (and I mean a "little") but go faster and generally be more efficient.

If your wife is getting frustrated then try the good old 'your hand over mine' approach. Use a single transmitter and have her put her thumbs on the controls. Stand behind her and put your thumbs over hers. Control the transmitter through her - she doesn't move her thumbs, you do. She should get the idea - subtle, smooth, gentle movements. I liken them to first-timers as the movements you make with a pen when you're writing cursive.

Good to here the boys are doing well! Good on them!

Cheers - boingk
