Proposition for you- no more negative comments till you give it a try. Deal?
vgs is a no because im using a single 51" wingbag and wings is quite squeeezed in there.... and as im traveling in a bus, not taking wings off is kinda... well... i would really want to see a dude taking 48" plane, wings on in the middle of london in a bus... sfgs, i actually might try them....

what kind of esc you are running? 60-70a? (if its sunnysky) on 13x8 i was pulling 50A on nearly discharged battery... Technically the bigger the propeller disc, the easier is to 3d...

I messed around with a few different props on my edge and settled on the 14x7. I felt it gave me the best post-stall performance and since that's where most of my flying is done that was the prop for me.

i would love to fly with 14x7, but as edge is only plane i keep nosing over... 13" is cheaper!

I fly with 14X7 APC's...plenty cheap here....but fortunately, I fly off of a nice runway, so not too many nose overs....

sounds good ill pick one up then

well i have no idea why, (im flying it with 2.5" dubros and no wheelpants) but my 42" slick in nearly a year i have nosed over only a couple of times... my EF laser only 1 time (when i noticed mud puddle too late), my EF edge not a single time and ex 3dhs 57" literally you could count noseovers on your hands fingers... but my 48" edge, every time im flying i get 1-2 nose overs... i have less than 20 batteries but im on my 3rd propeller there now...

But if you're flying in a park, probably off of grass...right? If so....gently bend the landing gear forward just a degree or two, it will make a big difference.....
