Do you guys read any of the previous posts on using an 8x6 prop? I suggest you use the search function on the forum before posting.
To say again, we swear by the APC 8x6 and will never go back to the stock prop.,..it is a marginal but noticeable performance increase. It also takes a pretty good nose over or crash to break it (not like the stock prop). And with some Autospray enamel (paint the prop entirely yellow first, then tape the tips and spray over black) and you have a fancy prop. Just tighten it well or else the extra torque will break the friction between the spindle and prop adapter and yuou will end up with spinning motor and stationary prop like we did...once only.
The only problem we have had from using this prop is the extra speed we generate at full throttle translating into added wing stress which contributed slightly to an in flight wing failure (note....we had weakened the wing prior with some heavy crashes).
In reality, you cant blame the prop for that. But there is nothing else to blame the 8x6 prop for.
ESC is fine.
