How many has he got, I spoke to him today about my new prop mount. I don't think they are in the country yet. I asked him what package he's selling I guess he is getting them ready. Perhaps we should bag one, I suspect they'll be sold out pronto.

Stop press, I just happened to have a look and Parkaero has them on his site now too. Don't know if he's planning doing a power set for it or if he's leaving it to us to find our own set up. I'm sure we'll find out in due time, he hasn't got stock yet but the signs are good

Yep that's what I thought too but looks like that's changed.

Couldn't help it, the itch got too much and it ended up in my basket. So the plane is sorted and I'm just going to wait and find out if Mark has plans for a power set before I sort anything else for it. I've got nothing against Robotbirds but you know what it's like, I like to stick to my regular dealer when it comes to Crack

I ordered a couple from TH and they fit fine on the stock motor. It does slow the mini down, and the motor runs a bit faster but the power is nice and smooth. I liked flying with the 6" prop.

What is the difference in regard to thrust with the 6" prop?

I can't give you a metric but it pulls like it's in a lower gear. Not a huge benefit as the bigger prop has no problem pulling the mini.

it allows the plane to fly slower ,doesn't seem to work the motor any harder,pull outs of a hoover or if you get in trouble just a tad slower,my prop fit just fine and i am keeping the 6 for indoor flying and will go to the 7 for outdoor
