A larger prop. spinning slower is more efficient, and more quiet.....
Hacker A60-5s is a different animal, not a comparable motor as beside the KV different it weights more
Yes the A60-5S weighs more, but as most 74" Edges come out tail heavy, the larger motor helps to balance it....as I have said....My 74" with the A60-5S, a Castle ESC100, a BEC Pro, two X 4S 45C 4400mAH Thunder Power packs all the way against the firewall and a 3oz. piece of lead under the motor box balances "very" slightly ahead of neutral. Moving anything back, or removing the lead would cause it to be tail heavy.
