I flew the 60" extra on a 15x6 for a long time and liked it, but after flying the 15x8 and 16x8 on the MXS, I would like to know if the 24x10TH can work on the DA60 with a stock muffler.

Like I said, I have a lot to learn now...

Like the posts from extreme flight and Daniel state....Tuning in the 60 with a muffler is much easier and there will be no rpm" surge" or "coming on the pipe" as with the KS or MTW tuned exhaust. The hard transition from the pipes can be dampened with different header lengths and throttle curves. You can buy props to try out yourself...but Daniel gave great info on what props would be best with mufflers or tuned pipes.
