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.

if you would have landed on the path the gear would have been just fine!! LOL you need to see my landing area....its about half that size with trees and reeds surrounding it... I land EDF's, Dynam Cessna and various other planes on it... I will take a vid of mine when I get it going... 1950kv on 3s should be more than enough for this little bird! And on 4s it will be ballistic!
