definitely. the extra weight of the 5320 helps out with balance, not to mention the 74 edge is a bit bigger and likes the bigger prop. on the 71, a 20x8 prop is the max i would run for torque purposes, but on the 74 edge i flew one with a 21x10 prop and it was perfectly fine. do it up!

Yea but Ken recommends staying with a 19" if you're doing hard 3D with the 5320 so I'd stick with that.

Hey Steve,
I tried an APC 20 x 12E today.
I like the prop because it's a little more durable and
less expensive than the Xoar 21x10.
It worked great for me, drawing about 95 amps F.T. on the ground.
I have the A60 6X / CCHV120 / 60C 5300 GensAce 6S
The battery gets barely barely warm and the motor gets warm.
I think I can do an APC 20 x 13E with no problems.
I'm wondering if you tried both 8 KHZ and 12 KHZ and what
the noticeable differences were?

being sarcastic Steve, actual a bit jealous to tell the truth, many of the guys I fly with are in their early 60's and just retiring with pretty nice pensions, police officers, high tech managers, postal workers, garbage workers, all getting good company backed pensions and full medical benefits. I'm afraid those times are all but over for most, certainly for me being self employed for most of my life, I mean I have a pretty good nest egg via sep ira and such, but my medical insurance is going to get me

Yeah, I knew you were...and yes, medical insurance is very expensive for sure...

Well...I don't argue politics in the 3DHS forums, but Barack Obama did not start Social Security, Franklin Delano Roosevelt did, on 8/14/1935...
And, contrary to what a lot of people think, it is not money that is just given out, I worked from the time I was 13 years old until 10:32 AM on Jan 21st, 2000, when I climbed down a ladder, pivoted on my right foot and blew my knee out, so, I now receive Disability Social Security. It is not welfare...During the whole time I worked, I paid into the Social Security fund, and I deserve every damn penny of what I get!!

Don't have the recording studio any longer....and that is one of the reasons I have some of my toys, because when I sold off my studio, live sound equipment, and band equipment, I paid off all of my bills.

As to time on my hands.....not as much as you might think....lots of things to do that pop up to keep me from going flying as much as I want to...

I'm still noodling how to collect SS if you just turned 62. I thought you had to be 62 for the month then collect. Unless it's not normal SS. I think my "retirement" is up to 68 now.

ahh NVM
