Looks like you will have to cut down a 6 x 5.5.

These guys will ship internationally and have the uncommon prop sizes. They have the 5.5x5.5 you are looking for. Very good quality props.

As Graupner is a German company, I'm sure they have some retailers that are closer to you than the US.

I wouldn't bother replacing the shaft on the stock motor when 2826-6 2200kV Turnigys are in stock at HK for <$10:

US warehouse:

Int warehouse:
http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...dProduct=12919

I'm 100% satisfied with this motor, stock prop (or ARC 5.5x5, but found these are more brittle than stock) on a 1300mAh 45-90C Nano-tech and a 40A ESC (wattmeter says it tops out around 30-35A at WOT).

sorry, should have said 3s. That motor isn't rated for 4s, I tried one and she started complaining (i.e. popping noises) at WOT.
3S with this motor is fast enough for me.
I love these batteries BTW - once I forgot to start the timer and flew her until the motor stopped.... battery took 1490mAh to recharge, with no puffing. Amazing.

cool that's you're recycling the stock motor. As long as you keep the shaft protected it's not a bad piece.
I put about 10 enjoyable flights on the stock set-up, before a not-that-bad-at-all landing bent the shaft. The 2826-2200kV motor ups the adrenaline factor from 6 to a 7 or 8 on a scale of 1 to 10, 1 being a Slow Stick, 10 being something like a solid fuel powered rocket plane.

No, but I've used the 30 amp version and faultless performance even on higher kv motors

anyone know how fast the stock Radjet is? I have changed the motor and esc but I cannot judge how fast its gong. I know it is much faster because i cannot hold in in the same figure 8 below the tree line like I did with stock set up.

I haven't lost any...yet lol. Knock on wood. I don't maiden my planes at my house, like the radjet. But once I get one line out on trim and rates and I've confirmed the power system works well, I have no problem flying at my house. And ever since I upgraded to Futaba Fasst 2.4ghz a few years back I've had NO radio reception problems at all.

Thanks. My back yard is basically 90ftx75ft with a 6ft privacy fence. Lucky the Radjet is pretty durable on belly landings. Most of the neighbors think it's neat, some don't even know or pay attention to my planes and the kid like them. Sometime when I launch a plane I can hear kids in there back yards going "whoa".... hahaha
