If the micro version is just as good as the larger I'll be in heaven. Out of the yaks I have in the hanger this one gets the most flight time.

Works great ! I prefer the 9x4.7 on a 2S any day. Make sure you get the Tuff brand of props there super strong and put the competitions to shame imo also never had balance one either.I found the SF 8x4.3 prop lacked in power to much for my aggressive style of 3D.

Dont you overload by drawing more current with this prop?

What KV motor? The 9x4.7 on my 1800KV motor at 6000' MSL does NOT work worth a damn!

Cool thanks i think im going to use that prop along with 2s then. Will the JST plugs that come on the gens ace 450mah 2s 25c work fine, or should i change them out to something like deans?

JST's work fine.

When I got into foamies I decided to change all of my connectors to micro Deans and they are slick and have very little resistance but it means I can't usually share batteries with people, it adds about 75 cents to the cost of every pack (which is significant on a 3 dollar battery LOL) and the pin that sticks out is dangerous (I have fried about 3 balance boards by being careless and letting the pin graze them).

Yah jsts on the little ones. And on the bigger planes I actually found I like the ec3 connectors the best. Easy and quick to solder.

I've been using EC2 on my little stuff just because JST is only good to about 8A and I wanted a single connector for up to 20A or so, basically anything small then an EC3 / XT60.
