Thanks Chris... Not familiar with ordering xoar but it doesn't indicate glow or electric. Is this what I should pick up.

How about 15x7 ? The 15x6 seems to be a bit slow on a windy day.

15x7 will work fine too, just a bit more Amp draw.

i thought that at first too....but the way i see it, it is just another way to tune your setup. in gas there is really one ideal prop for a certain motor. in electric, different props give you different performance. not necissarily worse, just different. its really fun to play around with them and find a setup you like

Electric is simplier, IMO. You spend more time flying instead of baby sitting the nitro power system.

Electric setup --> prop, current, voltage, and temp. These are all you care.

Interesting?? It's a strange thing when a company go's mainstream...I really enjoyed the days when I was flying 3dhs and you would bump into one, or two other people with the brand... I love the slick, but it seems like everyone and his grandfather has one at the field?? I guess when your planes show up in real flight, the next step would be tower?

Theres nothing wrong with it, and i wish them the best!! I know money talks, but I perfer small personable companies... In my business, some times if you get to big to fast, you get crushed under your Owen weight..Or you sell the business and make a killing..

I think Freddy is kidding Tim.. Just seeing Ben hanging over the GP banner and making a funny (right Freddy)... I searched in the 3dhs forum and didn't see that statement from Ben.
