Question
Pusher vs tractor do the same rule of thumb apply?

I'm finally getting around to build my GWS A4 skyhawk. I was going to go down the EDF route but due to noise I'm considering a pusher prop.

I assume the same lbs per watt rule applies whether it's a pusher or a tractor. Is that correct?

Can anyone direct me to any resources detailing thrust angles, prop sizes. Looked at this forum but can't see a general information topic.

Cheers Andrew
