What prop for Aeroworks Extra 300 (60-90) and Saito 100?


I have an aeroworks 60-90 size Extra 300 and I will be putting a Saito 100 in it. Not sure what prop size would work best for this plane but most people seem to say the 15 x 6 for this motor. Any suggestions?

A light, QUALTIY wood 15x6, like Xoar or a JXF, (my personal favorite) will probably serve you well. When bought in quantity (say 10 or so), they can be had for seven or eight bucks each, including shipping. I get mine here.

Ok Thanks......would an APC 15x6 be ok as well ya think?

I would like to hold off on the wood until I get some time on the bird

I run a 15x6 on both of my 100's. Hog Bipe and Extra 300. Nice thrust and speed.

I hear you loud and clear. Even at "only" 7 or 8 bucks a piece, the price adds up quick. The APC 15x6 offers excellent thrust. The only problem is the added mass dramatically affects the spool up time. I fly mostly 3D stuff and the extra snappy throttle response sometimes means the difference between a near miss and a night (or more!) in the workshop doing repairs. The APC is a bit more durable and will probably yield great results. If you want the ultimate in durability, a Master Airscrew K-series prop is very hard to beat. The noise is worse, the thrust is less and the weight is higher, but it's damn near impossible to break the thing.

Hehehe...yeah wood props definitely have better spool up! I think I will just get one APC 15 x 6 and get used to the plane and move to a good wood prop like you suggest. Thanks for the info.!
