Finally maidened my Jolt yesterday. All went well. I started off easy with a Mega F5D motor/4s battery and a 5 x 5 prop, worked well, but then went with a 6 x 4 prop, that was much better. Next flights will be with a 6 x 5.5 prop, that should liven it up some. I'd like to go with a folder prop as breaking straight props every other flight sucks. Does anybody know of an outlet for say 6 x 6 or 6 x 5.5 folders?
Thanks,
lumpy

I got 6x6 I'll try today on my v-tail Swift.
It might be too much prop for me, so you're welcome to it.

I don't even remember. Got few couple of years ago. Got 6x3, 6x6 and 6.5x4 and 7.3x4. They mount on 8x3 yoke, so I can use them on my RFM spinners.
I wanna say it was value hobby, but not sure.

Ok.

What motor (kv) and cell count do you run them on? Just wondering about RPM limits.

I ran them today on 3750 kV on 3s. they didn't work for me. Motor was getting hot. I ended up with F5D prop 5x4.75. I might try extra 5 deg on spinner.
