Been running my P47 with the parkzone extra 300 prop (10.5 x 9) completely stock for almost 2 years now. No problems.

Congrats! Great choice. Mine is bone stock with recommended extras. Some say boring, I say no stress totally reliable. I do wish 4 bladers were stock.

I've been running mine completely stock with only the Extra 300 10.5x9 on my P-47 for two years now with 0 problems. In fact I highly recommend that if you do only one thing change to this prop.

You gain about 10 mph and increased thrust as well. I use throttle management and get safely get 6-7 min of flying per 2200mAh pack.

Yes, I do. However, even Matt Andren of PZ says you can fly the Extra prop no worries. Beyond that an upgraded esc would be recommended.

just a touch off topic

Have you guys seen the Starmax P-47 that Hobby Lobby is advertising? I've been drooling over it for the last couple days. The cockpit detail is amazing and it comes with a 16x8 4 bladed prop, retracts and flaps on a 63" wingspan airframe.

http://www.hobby-lobby.com/starmax_p...41934_prd1.htm

and now we return you to our regularly scheduled thread.

I know this is at off of topic here, but you guys on this thread seem to be real helpful. I need to store my 2 and 3 cell batteries for the next few months. What's the best way of doing it and do I need to decharge them. And if so how do I decharge them and t what level. I don't think I will be flying much for the rest of the winter here in Cleveland :-(

Check the batteries forum. You need to get to 3.85v per cell.

Well you could take them to a Browns game, that's been known to suck the energy out of anyone(anything) in attendance.

The best way to discharge them is with a charger that has a discharge setting. Short of that you can just put on gloves and fly the bird one more time and then on the recharge only charge them to 3.85v per cell.

What charger are you using?

+1 on that using the discharge or storage mode is the best way to do it.
