The MasterAirscrew 9x7 three blade props arrived, installed them, and then tested the thrust, not much of an improvement over the 4-blade props I tested previously:

Master Airscrew 9x7 3 blade
Eflight Park 480 x 2 1020 kv
4400 mah 3 cell 40c batt
Total thrust: 5 lbs 2 oz

The all up weight is now 6 lbs 12 oz giving it a thrust to weight ratio of 0.80.
Will try to maiden this weekend and post video

VERY nice work ECworks, Your C-160 has a Huge Broad wing! She's Gonna create a TON of lift and fly like a homesick angel!
