19x10 20x8. I recommend trying both and hitting with a wattmeter too.

Yea... need to get me one of those. It's WAY long overdue by now.

I bought 3DBobz 71" Slick and he had a 4325-310 with an 18x8 xoar (running 8s setup) and an Ice 100. I like the way it flies but I'd like to see a little more umph!

I'm nervous about going up to a 19x10 with the Ice 100 though. Are you running a 19x10 on that motor with 8s setup? If so, what size ESC do you have in there?

I've been using the powerlog 6s, does more than I know how to use, but I like that it records the high watts/amps after a run up and it has a tach, a motor KV feature and a super accurate voltage meter

With the 4325 don't go over a 19x8. The larger 4330 handles the bigger props much better.
The 4325 will work with no issues on an ice 100 with the 19x8 prop. It will give you close to the same power as the 5320 gave you.

Hoping my braces show up tomorrow. I don't think the mail people like me

Thanks Matt. I'll slap that 19x8 on there and see how I like it. The 18x8 just left me wanting for a little more to be honest.

But outside of that I'm just absolutely blown away by the stability of this plane!!

Now I need to build my replacement 57" SC and my new 58" Edge and I'll be in business.

Oh yeah! There's absolutely a difference. I can't put my finger on it but this one just feels a lot floatier and a LOT more locked in. The floatiness is is likely because of the difference in motors (I sold my 5320 thinking that I was going to replace my Slick with a 58" Edge and then I found an awesome deal on a 71" Slick in my area with a 4325 in it) but the locked in feeling... not sure. All I can say is that I like flying this Slick worlds better than the 70" Slick.

It almost feels like flying one of those models in the simulator that are WAY too easy to fly.

I have a 71" slick video uploading! It's not that great though. It's only my second flight on the plane.

And on that note, I just got the new batch of carbon fiber and will get the "new orders" made in the next day or so, so that I can ship them out.

Also....if anybody from the first batch hasn't gotten theirs yet, (except for Smithder whose will be mailed tomorrow, sorry for the delay) please let me know.....

That's funny you say that. I remember we were talking about my RF electric slick variant right before you got your 70. Lol you said if the real slick flys anything like this variant you would be amazed. I guess I wasn't that far off.
