I have tried all different setups. The power combo it comes with is pretty much the most efficient, highest speed producing and lightest setup.

If you go any faster the aircraft becomes uncontrollable becuase of the strength of the elevons. If you reinforce them and change the power system you change the characteristics and overall wieght.

+1 on this ^^^.

I used the insanely fast power combo, and swapped the GWS props and prop saver for a regular prop adapter and more ridged APC prop.
It may have gone a touch faster, but ate the battery a lot faster, and I had issues with torque roll on launch too.

Flexible little prop, with a prop saver, seems to be the best for this high RPM setup.

Do you think this can handle the payload of a pico cam setup with the altitudeRC nano transmitter?

Got mine from Hobby King Hextron 24 gram 3000 kv motor from the USA East Warehouse but I think they are out right now.

I just find the props on Ebay, GWS EP Propeller 5043 and ream them to fit.

I put a hand held Coolpic Nikon S3500 camera on mine and did ok. Too much drag at WOT will break a prop. FatShark Pilot camera worked great strapped to the battery and no problems going full throttle.
