dpowellmeii Thanks! I went to apc's webpage and all they list is a speed400 6x4 pusher prop (no thin electric or slow fly props). Am I making an assumption that most folk's are using apc prop's on these parkjets? If so any recommendations?

Thanks again!

Robin

If you're running high rpms I'd go with the thin e props.

They sell a 6x4e and 6x4ep.

You said you are going to use a Suppo 2212-06. I've used several of those motors and the the setup that I like best is using a collet adaptor, APC 6x4E prop on a 3S 2200 mah battery. This is the light speed setup. For more vertical and less speed use a 1500 kv motor with an APC 7x5E prop.

dpowellmeii,
Sorry, I don't mean to be dense but this is a new area of the hobby for me, the Tower link is for an APC 6x4e (tractor) prop that they call a 'thin electric', are you running (or can you run) a tractor prop (facing forward)? To further confuse things the only 6x4 props I see on APC's website are the 6x4 sport (glow), a 6x4e, and 6x4ep both in the speed 400 series The thin electric series jump from 5x3 to 6x5.5 (tractor) and 5x3 to 7x5 (pusher), I don't mean to get all wrapped around the axles on the nomenclature but I just want to make sure I order the right prop and I'm getting a bit confused.

Thanks Kevin,

I typed the last post before before I saw yours (dosed off while typing)! Yes I do have the 2212-06 on the way and will try that set up first but may very well try your other recommendation on the second (especially if it's any quieter). The only thing I was confused about is if you guy's are using the 6x4e as a pusher or do I need to get the 6x4ep?

Thanks again, Robin
