I replaced one part on mine, that fuselage, finally had enough ca repairs, and it's got that nice brand new look again. Got to avoid those low going spins for awhile....

Just came back to this thread. Which prop did you guys find provides less ampdraw and more thrust/speed? Is there any solution to make this plane a little more quiet either? Thanks

Only way to make it quieter is to swap out that hornet's nest 3000kv motor for something else. I don't know if anyone has attempted to put the whisper quiet 2300kv motor in it. Selecting a prop for that would be an interesting project!

The only prop swap I know about is putting a 4040 on it. I'm sure it doesn't lessen the amp draw but it sure turns it into a little monster! But you've got to have good batteries for that.Having more power for less amps is always a trick. If you discover something, let us know!

4040 does make it much quieter.

Is this an APC prop or something like a GWS prop? Gotta go to the lhs to get a part for my 130X and figured I'd pickup this prop while I'm there...

Thanks!
Pete

Okay, you convinced me to get the F86 too! Just too good of a price to pass up! I already have an MQX.
