It's clear that WOT for long periods with these set ups is to be avoided.
Looking on the Great Planes website, they recommended a stock prop of 11 x 5.5E
Has anyone actually flown with the stock prop? I'm interested to hear how many watts it pulls and what sort of speed you can expect? Just curious as might be a nice way to ease a first time flyer into this model who doesn't want to jump straight into mach 3
Or does it fly like a dog with this prop?
