Just completed my test fights with the 0503 prop and tp325 battery. I could not tell if the 5030 prop was any more efficient or not but I can tell you one thing for certain. THat prop is much more durable to blade strikes than the stock prop was.

As for the battery, I like the duration you get from it. It does seem to fly slightly faster with it but landing is much easier with the extra weight. THe approaches are faster and tend to nose over less when no flaps are used. With flaps deployed, I am sure the approaches are still faster but it is hard to tell the difference. The added weight seems to keep the plan from dropping like a brick immediagly once you flair out. It still will stall out but the time between flair and stall seems to be a little wider. With the 180 pack, I had to make approaches on a 30 degree decline ((no flaps) in order to keep from stalling and nosing over when it touched down. Seems my approach may be in the aea of 25 degrees or so. Slightly better.

Any one else notice that this plane is easier to fly heavy?
