I used to fly mine on 3S with a 7x6. Tried it with an 8x4 once and that worked too, although I only tried it the once so wouldn't really know if there were likely to be any problems. On a 7x6 with 3S there isn't much power so you have to be careful with the launch. Make sure you've got plenty of throttle and a good throw. I don't imagine it would have enough power to launch vertically but for the first throw maybe get a buddy to throw it and ask them to give it about 30 or 40 degrees. Make sure it's set up well too - small throws, elevator sagging a bit at neutral, battery all the way forward for some extra static margin etc. For the first go I'd wait for a bit of wind to throw it into as well. If you've flown racers before then you'll be fine.

Ok I'll go for 7x6 with 3s.
It's my first racer I used sailors, bixler and zagi wings (and multicopters..)
Any particular model?
APC style?
Graupner?
Bye

Depends where you buy from. I mostly use Hobbyking. From there the TGS are no good (hub too big for the spinner) but the APC-style are very good and very cheap and they fit the spinner.

Has anyone flown this plane with a APC 5.5x5.5 on the stock motor/esc setup? Wondering if torque rolling on takeoff is lessened any. I would think a smaller diameter prop would help. I know the EFX racer guys are having good luck with those props.

The efx is a different beast,
If torque roll is a issue toss it harder..
I've used 5.5x4.5 with no issue. Just quite slower
