The Vox 14x7 is the prop for that motor in my opinion. Should see you up to 500W. Mine does at about 45A.

That sounds about right for the prop but you really want to be using a 14x7 Vox or Xoar and get the numbers up a bit (needs better ESC obviously)

I do have a few 13 inch props for back-up and they are still much fun, but pretty much always keep a 14x7 for the T40 motor Perfect combo.

The 13x6.5 will fly it fine with plenty of power, but if you really want every bit of power, definately go for the 14x7!

4 fantastic flights today, really love how comfortable I was with this one today, light and floaty, low rollers on the second battery, very predicable, beautiful slow flat spins, great KE spins, fits my style just perfect, really happy with my buy. I flew all with the 13x6.5, I thought I had a 14x7 in my field box, but didin't. power was good, but I can't wait to try the 14x7

Sounds excellent! Yes I flew my AMR on 13x6.5 Vox for ages and was very happy with it.

Excellent to hear! You will love it even more as you explore the envelope

I know we talk it up a ton on these threads, but I am curious: Did the KE spins meet your expectations?

they were good, it balls up nice and tight, but hard to get it to flatten out into an inverted flat spin at the bottom like I like to do, but give me some time

I'll try and get a video soon

Oooh video! Yes please .

I'm still trying to get the hang of continuous rolling . So difficult. Doesn't help that some of the more experienced 3D pilots tell me that rolling-anything is pretty much one of the hardest things you can do.

If you do get it to flatten out in an inverted flat spin can you share? I've been having some trouble getting nice flat inverted spins. It's weird because the upright ones come out fine.

Sweet! No doubt you will figure out the bottom of the KE spin.

AMR also does a blender better than most anything I have flown- it flattens out and practically arrests itself mid-air. Its like putting the breaks on

Tighter than your AJ?
that's wierd that you battle I find the AMR is the easiest plane for me to come out flat.it automatically just falls into inverted flatspin,or I'm doing something I'm not even realising I'm doing.
Glad your enjoying it.
See told you it will be the besy $200 you'll spend

looking over the plane this evening I just noticed I'm missing 3 of the nuts that go on the bolts of the carbon bracing between the top wing and fuse, I can't believe I missed these in my 1st inspection, maybe they came off in flight today. anyways everything still is tight, but does anyone know the size of those nuts

That stinks, better get that locked down as there are a lot of g's on this airframe.

Did you use loc-tite on all your metal connections during your build? I read a previous post a few pages back (or possibly in the KMX or Bandit thread) someone had used CA instead of loc-tite...

didn't build it, bought used, but looks like there is no loctite. Such is the case buying used, almost more work going over everything than building it yourself. But I can't complain for the price, at least it was built ultra straight
