I don't have this particular model, I have the BF-109, but I would imagine that silver spinner you are pointing at in your photo just pulls off and there is a nut under it that you have to unscrew.

Ok,
There is no nut.
It was just unscrew the front
But it was so tight
I was afraid to break it
Everything is in order now
thanks

Right. The front hub is a nut, The scale hub will split in two and you must put the prop in the middle.

When is the maiden? Check CG carefully. Better if it is a little nose heavy.

Can you take measurements of the EXACT wingspan and length? Maybe your EXACT CG you are using that you think works. I'm keeping track over on the Nitroplanes 800mm warbird thread. Thx

Prop effect

I recommend not going beyond 7x5 props.

I changed to 8x5 and the plane was very difficult to control. See the results.

Gorilla glue, here I come!

ouch, I usually don't have a problem with too much power but you gotta know when to use it and when not to (like not on take off unless you are doing a near vertical hand launch). Hey, is the BF sale a lower price or it's normal one?

Second flight: This time with a Turnigy 30C 11.1v 1000mAh and a 2 blade 7x5 master airscrew prop. The plane took off easily and flew a bit jumpy. There was gentle crosswind. The plane is very fast. It was not easy to get a proper slope for landing and ended in some bushes without damage.

Third flight was similar. this is a quite fast plane and you need fast fingers during final approach and landing. I think it is better to hand launch w/o wheels and belly land on grass.

iWhen it is flying it is easy to spot, I was worried about the dark color, but the bent wing is visible at all times (almost).

I liked it.
How did you mount your new prop? What adapter did you use?
