Jason from Horizon I think already said clearly that Force RC is done. They are dropping the line because of consolidation after acquiring Hobbico.

Which yes is a big shame.

I increased the performance of my 3-year old RocHobby Strega P-51 1100mm Reno Racer by switching out the stock 10.5x8 4-blade prop to a custom cut and dynamically-balanced APC 11x12E prop. I used a spare APC 11x10E prop as a template by placing it on top of the APC 12x12E prop and lined them up, pegged together by a screwdriver. Then I used a pair of Fiskars Diamond Cut Shears and carefully cut the ends of the APC 12x12E prop, matching the length and tip shape of the 11" APC prop. Then I carefully sanded the tips with very fine grit sandpaper to match and rebalanced the prop dynamically.

The stock spinner was also modified with enlarged prop exit holes and rebalanced to accommodate the size and pitch of the APC 11x12 prop.

Using this custom APC 11x12E prop, the performance boost is dramatic and easily noticeable over the stock 10.5x8 4-blade prop. Max Static Amps reached 57.6a with a fully charged Admiral 4S 2200mAh 45C lipo.. plenty of overhead room with the stock 70-amp ESC.

Thanks for watching!
Now if you wanna go a step further, get yourself a 5S 3300 lipo and a 10x10E APC prop and turn that baby loose!

Sounds fun. I may have to pick up a few 5S batts. That’s an odd size though so it may not be used often.

The intent of the post was not to post anything new. I’ve had this plane for a while now and is still in pristine condition. I’ve kept the stock prop on for a while since I liked the appearance. However as time went on I wanted a bit more out of the Strega. This was also a more of a personal post.

Evan, my apologies for posting very old news. My post has been deleted. Sorry to disturb this thread.

Not meant to be negative, it’s just that we’ve been doing it that way for 5-6 years.

Edit... we now have the Flightline 1200mm birds like their Spitfire and going to an uncut 12x12 works with it too. On 4s speed is similar to stock prop and it’ll handle 5s and 6s!!!

FMS still has the blank airframe parts and is the only way now ..I flew mine today with flightline digital servos and the stock motor setup ,no buzzy bad quality servos .completely silent. what a smooth pattern like mustang . don't give up so easy ..I have four sets stashed away ..
