Successful maiden today!
Flew one pack with an APC 6x4 in 8mph winds. At times it just hovered, but I took it a full mistake high and had fun doing loops and wing overs, and just flying circuits.
Next I thought I would try an APC 7x5 (LHS didn't have the recommended GWS 6x5). It flew great for two minutes. Then at full throttle at mid loop, the O-ring broke or popped off. I kept my eye on the plane and managed to land in one piece, but never did find the prop on the snow and ice. I knew the 250 o-ring was too small, but I used it anyhow...lesson learned.
I also used the brown Sharpie trick on the props. Thanks for the tip.
What props are people using besides the 6x4? Any one using APC 7x4 with the 250?
