I hear what you are sayin'
Performance wise I think the 5055 430kv with 3 blade is the sweet spot, the authority she had in the air transformed her into a very enjoyable plane to fly, and after 6 mins including landing all 4 lipo's (6S 5000mah 35C) landed with 3.7 volts/cell and put 2700mah back into the batts, but the 5060 295kv might be the scale compromise. Now she's trimmed out she flies on rails, a crying shame there is Starmax no more.
Two or three weeks ago I checked out LHS for the FMS F4U 1700mm complete prop but they only had the blades, so when the slow boat from China arrives I'll be trying that prop. In the mean time I'll give this Beila a burl, hopefully sometime between now and the weekend.
