Question
Electric Carden Extra 300 Prop

My 89" extra 300 is running an eflight power 360 motor on a 12s setup with a 24x12 prop. It seems to be lacking some power.. I wouldn't say it has unlimited vertical performance.

Would you recommend propping up with this config?

I'm running the Power 360 on my Redwing 50cc Slick 540. I am also running a 12S setup spinning a Xoar 24X10 gas prop. The power on my plane is unreal with unlimited vertical. I am using a CC 160HV ESC an until I updated the firmware to 4.20 it just did not come up to full power.

Wow.. mine is horrible with a 24x10. I ordered a 25x12 xoar electric prop to see how that is.

I wonder if your Redwing is lighter. According to the Redwing page the build weight on yours is 15-17lbs and the Extra is 18-21lbs. I haven't weighed mine, but that could be a huge difference.

The weight difference will have an effect on performance. Take a look at this video of AJ flying his 93" Laser 230Z 93" with a Q-80 motor (same power as the Eflite Power 360) and 24X10 prop. No lack of power that I can see and the plane comes in around 18 - 20 lbs. I'd say if your not getting the performance you see in the videos there may be something wrong in your setup. The electric props are not recommended on this motor. We all fly gas props on big electric motors around here. Like I said, when I first put mine together the motor would not come up on full power until I updated the firmware to 4.20. What version firmware are you running?
