Keep the setup info coming guys. When there's enough I'll put together some sort of data table with prop, cells, amps, rpm, watts etc. Just to make the info more easilly atainable.

DUP 6x10 and 6.25x11's on 32mm RFM spinner ( giving 5.5" and 5.75" diameters)

6x10 on this spinner is 5.5x9.16
6.25x11 on this spinner is 5.75x10.12

Scorpion 3026-1400
CC125 5 degrees timing in outrunner mode
5S 1800 65C turdigies

Tested kV - 1428

6x10 DUP Folders -
25531 rpm (222mph pitch speed )
1115W
56.77A
19.5V

6.25x11 Folders -
23255 (223mph pitch speed )
1441W
77.6A
18.58V

Freeky how the pitch speeds are the same

Both spin smoothly, nicely balanced, sound good statically. Had some odd issues with the 6.25x11's. Rpm was fluctuating a little while moving throttle around. Dunno what that is, could be timing thing. Its possible the long motor wires are causing the esc a lil trouble.

To give you an idea of the loads, APC sport prop comparison -

The eagletree fits in the fuselage, so Ill add to this with inflight numbers

Good pitch speeds there! Although the calculated speed will be a bit out since they are turning on smaller hubs (can never remember which way it makes it go - up or down)...

Probably a case of seeing how they unload in the air, the bigger prop is probably going to give more thrust which could be handy....

Yup it does drop pitch, I cant remember the link to the formula though. Considering this is supposed to be an F5D setup a bit less pitchspeed is probably a good thing.

6S+ will be thrown in for ampfest. Go fast or go boom (or fizzle pop!)

lol, I know its tiny but I'm tired of breaking a 6 dollar prop each flight! I just referbed my tiny SFW wing using an old Razor H2 heli motor with new ceramic bearings! At 27" wing it goes like stink! Need a 10-12a esc now! It'll turn a 3x3 @ 38k and the 4x3 @ 33.5k
Apex I just did a 3.9x4.1 in carbon. If you're interested I can send it to you. It's a one off though!

Its probably to chunky for your setup anyway. I was running 1.5kw through it the other day! Lot of power through a tiny prop!

It could be your spinner OOB too (if you're using one).
