Most of the S400 pylon meet your requirement. I'm using Mega 16/15/4, irate 1100 3s2p with my VIP, this config is very popular here.
But it's not easy to find a folding prop for 5" size. The smallest I can only found is the 6"X3".

Yes, u can get it from espritmodel, shrediar, ...
I haven't counted or compared the speed with other pylon before, just know that the Sokol is faster with same setup, but the landing speed is faster too.

Hi. Looks quick. Any idea how fast ywhenry? A guy I fly with is using a Himax 28XX (not sure) but 2000 rpm/volt in his OD F16 pusher. It has been clocked on the radar gun at 160kmh (100mph)

A few of the other guys are using the mega 16-15-4 on 3S and they are about the same speed.

Here is a 4.7x2.4 (26mm x 22mm) folder from Graupner:

The Quick is $118 at NESail, and there have been several reports on it recently.

Note the "advanced" warning on these planes on the NESail website. Understand that all of these pylon racers are VERY small and VERY fast, so they will all be "Gone in 0.6 Seconds".

Twister from CSD is also a nice fast and aerobatic airplane. Slightly larger than your pylon racers (VIP, Sokol etc.) so its easier on the eyes. I fly mine with a 16/15/5, 6.5 x 4 prop, 3S 2100 TP pack . Great vertical!

Don't bother checking out the Twister.

I tried to purchase one and Robert Cavazos replied that he wouldn't even TAKE my order until January. Then the delivery would be "when he got to it".

Nice plane, but you can't buy one.

Too bad about CSD Twister availability...

They have been getting alot of good press here lately.
I love mine.....
Fly it with a 3s2P 1200Mah (2400Mah total) ETEC or 10x1100GP NIMH.
I use a mega 16/15/4.
Both setups are great.....however the 10-cell GP is a hotter setup.
I'll be upgraded my ESC and trying a 5.5x5.5 graupner the next time I go out to the field.
