If you can try a mej 24x10 before buying, I'd do that first. Out here, the Mej was night and day different than the Falcon. On a da120, I'd go 29x9 Falcon all the way.

I haven't had a chance to try the Falcon prop, but I like the Vess Stealth 24B on mine, 6750rpm.

And we are still waiting for the report on that one... Did you even get a chance to see how it was going to balance?

i flew a 87 witha 23a and felt it had plenty of power. so when i got mine i went with the 23a. now about 3.5 gallons later, the motor has really loosened up and i like thepower.

to add....I was told by 3dhs to stay away from a light gas prop. Good solid wood prop. Lower idles etc. I find even at low idle my 87 will want to just keep going and going.

Ok, so it sounds like either a 23a or 24a is the prop to get. Would carbon be better?

Haven't used a Vess carbon on the 55 yet, but I LOVE my Stealth 28b on my DA120!
