The APC 20x8e is almost identical in weight to yours. Mejzlik's 20x8e is almost half the weight of the Xoar 20x8 PJN. Looks like it's gonna be $20-30 more then the gas prop.

looked around, looks like mejzlik only released one size of the ultra light? i am sure more are to come, but the PT models carbon props (sold by esprit) have ultra light ones as well that do not start until 20x13 or so. the mejzlik ultra light i found was a 20x13 also i believe. im ordering a mejzlik 18x8e for my new vyper cant wait to slap it on

yeah i was just thinking the same thing. its nice they finally are putting out an 18x10, but a 19x8 and 19x10 would really complete their electric offerings. we need more us companies to carry them too...im sick of either ordering from europe or going through DA

A 20X9 and 24X9 would also be nice. Falcon now has a carbon 24X9 what I want to try on my Hacker Q80. Joe Smith is using one on one of his planes...

one thing i noticed on my 104 was how slow the spool up time was...i wonder if using an electric carbon prop would help (or even the ultra light) with quicker throttle response

There is a noticable difference in spool up from a 50+gram xoar to the 110gram mejzlik prop. So I'm sure you would notice.

Steve you need to try a mejzlik 24x10th prop on that motor. I did and its awesome. Great power!

That's what I have on it..... But when I take off an pull hard vertical, I can hear the motor lagging just a tiny bit. On the video I am talking about of Joe's, you can see/hear the instantaneous acceleration of that motor/prop/plane...
