I hear ya, but they're not that similar to me; my UM Pole Cat flew much slower that the UMX Sbach can! (I mean that as an advantage to the UM Pole Cat, it can be flown and enjoyed in a much smaller area than the UMX Sbach!)

Agreed, 2S would be nuts (and maybe even burn out the motor) unless you have swapped the internals...

as6410nbl, 3000kv motor, 4040 prop. already does over 80kph. Only lasts about two minutes at WOT but it's a crazy two minutes. I almost flew it out of sight once.

I want video!! That's almost as fast as the Sbach on 3S!

Speaking of which, WHY has nobody tried the 4040 prop on the Sbach???? I'm adding a few to my next HH order.

I've got 4040 props but they're only on my UMX Stryker where it has to be 4" to clear the rudders.

Where prop size is not important (Sbach, Beast, Carbon Cub) bigger is better. 5" minimum!

I know bigger produces more thrust, but smaller with steeper pitch is faster. I just want to try a 4040 on my Sbach.

Sure, why not?
Though it still doesn't have the pitch of a 5043....
