Sorry to hear about the crash.

The first thing I thought of when reading that was a battery fire. LiPo's can be very dangerous if damaged. If your plane crashes and there's smoke coming out of it, I'd assume it's a battery fire and stay back. A LiPo burns as a chemical/electrical fire, so once it starts, it will continue to burn itself out unless it's totally smothered with something like sand.

Sorry to hear that man.
I used to fly my T28 and P47 Parkzone and I am interested in buying the Artizan, but I see the Artizan flys with the nose up.... and donīt like that. Is that true? I mean flys with the nose towards up, with no leveled fuselage.

Never really thought about that, but yes, it does look like that at times.
If a little thing like that stops you from buying the Artizan, then you are really missing out on a very good flying Sport/Aerobatic plane.

A Slow Fly prop, because of the way it is designed, will draw more amps than a regular prop of the same size.
My bench tests showed more amp draw with the APC 10 x 7 SF than it did with either the stock prop or an APC 11 x 7 E prop.
The standard E prop is more for speed & the Slo Fly gives more low end pull.
I believe the 10 x 7 SF prop will be better for what "steelgtr" is looking for.
Just my opinion here (easy enough & not much money to experiment with a couple of different props)
I have a lot of planes & so far the Artizan is one of only a few that i haven't tried different props.
Ok Clive - good info....so you think I should order 11X7E for replacment? I only have the one prop it came with & you know how my landings are....
