WE have a new Wal Mart so they may have something yours doesn't. The old Wal Mart does not have these. There is even one that opened up about a year ago. It does not have them. Maybe I should just buy all that our Wal Mart has and sell them Here. They are in the girls toy section, and they are in a box that hangs on a peg. They are made by Fisher-Price and are called Loving Family. They are for 3+. The box is pink on the sides and clear plastic on the front showing the two figures.

There are three Wal Marts with in 10 miles of me. I don't see how they can all be busy enough to stay open, but we shall see.

Loven the prop

It works and looks great. I flew a 2100Mah battery today with it for about 12 minutes. It has plenty of power and speed. It was all the lhs had in a 10 in prop without having to get a slow fly prop. My electronics don't seem to be getting hot either. However there has not been one of those 100 degree days here lately with high humidity. All I can say is get one and try it out. They cost less than $3.00. Whats that maybe a cup of cappuccino at Starbucks? (A small one at that.)

Here is my latest purchase

Some of these prices seem a little high. Seeing as I only paid $5.00 for mine.

While I have lots of nitro props, I've never tried them on my electrics. I've tried lots of props on my Glow models/ engines and tried lots of Eprops on my electric models/motors, I haven't tried nitro props on electric models. Perhaps it's tunnel vision. Lessee, I think I have a 10x7 RevUp; thin airfoil, wide blade, hmmmm......

Just an aside but don't be afraid to try a SlowFly prop. I'm flying my T'Craft with a 10x7 APC SloFly prop. I had one left over so I tried it. Worked well. Some guys are using the recommended APC-E 10x8. I didn't have one so go figure..... Whatever works, eh?

I have the XOAR 11x5 on mine and it works great. I've also tried the 11x4.7 slow fly prop and it also works well.

Here are some pics I took today of Rvincents Taylor at Whittier Narrows. I don't know the details about this power system but I do know know that its not a LittleScreamer motor . He let me fly it too and its surprisingly neutral for a high wing which makes knife edge flying pretty easy.

Had my maiden today. Plane flies really nice, feels light on the wing. The dubro ski's work great. Ground handling was surprisely easy. As soon as the plane starts moving the preloaded springs on the ski's pop the tail out of the snow and ground handling was a breeze with the rudder.
