Sorry for any confusion and thanks for listing the size chart Shadow........!

Quad,

Go back to page 213......discussion of the "Other" retracts starts somewhere around there. You can go back a few pages more as there was a discussion about the actuators that are used......We have the Secraft Retracts and they are working just fine.

Hope this helps you out in making your decision on which to purchase

My final comment on this matter. After the person asks to put a 4S lipo on the copter which reduces the RPM of the motor you go on suggesting he should use a MUCH smaller prop.
If you really are smart and you work for 17!!! years in this domain please explain how that makes ANY kind of sense.
I only said that you should learn the basics as clearly you do not know them. Your replay that you work in this domain for 17 years is the real joke here. I still recommend you learn the basics. If you want i can PM you some links to understand the relationship between motor kv, battery size and prop size...
Also please tell me how it was boyish of me to tell you the truth ? If you really have such a impressive CV in this matter than it is very sad that you don't understand much about this matter...
