It's amazing how the right lighting conditions impact a shot like that. There is a reason why photographers refer to twilight as the "Golden hour".

Tomorrow is supposed to be really windy, and I don't fly on Sundays, due to the fog(s)...Sunday at our field is the day that all the Warbird guys and scale guys come out and fly circles with an occasional roll or loop...and you don't dare do anything over the runway....Maybe Monday..

As to the power, it remains to be seen, as noted, it was really windy, and down wind was fast, seemed to slow down into the wind, but I couldn't really get a feel for it yet. I know I needed to put a bit of throttle curve in, as I was at about 3/4 throttle most of the flight, however, the motor came down barely warm, the packs were barely warm, and I only took out 65% on a five minute flight.

I might still try the A60-6XS in it.....just have to watch the landings due to prop clearance...And, I want to check the Castle logging tomorrow..

I tried the protek 13x6 and it seemed to be very good quality. It was hard to compare as I didnt realize it was 13x6 instead of 13x6.5 when I ordered it. The prop had a nice smooth pull to it. I am running the protek 20x10 on my 71 now. The only thing I don't like is the fact they both have to be reamed where the xoar comes with the correct sized hole for my prop adapters in both sizes. Not a biggie but worth mentioning.

3dhs 48 Edge - Protek 13x6 prop test (5 min 27 sec)

71 Slick - Protek 20x10 in close. (3 min 26 sec)

I don't know if I'd use ply wood. There is a lot of twisting force on that joiner, so I'd use something a little harder, like a solid piece of hardwood like ebony or something similar.
