I am already hating the plastic mount and know that it is going to be replaced very soon. I will use the stock X brace mount with stand offs most likely...
7x6 on the 3S - its fine believe me .....
8" prop once you know the model as that extra diameter will be torque and liable to flip the model in.
The 7x4 for the 4S is about as low as want to go ... but fly her then just sit with 7x6 on both 3 and 4S !!
The mount .... that is a pain as the top part of the firewall is very narrow and the plastic mount is sloped to allow the cowl to fit over. Standard mounts will not fit. That is why I had to fashion my own in the end.
I am considering whether it's possible to modify such as the Skyartec Cessna metal mount ... but at end of day its restricted space at top.
