Trying out Xoar wood props

Despite my stock props being balanced, symmetrical, and free of defects they always seem to loud and to not have a lot of punch at full throttle. I've been told get wood props countless times, but I was out and my CZ Yak was making me cringe when I heard the advice yet again. This time I listened.

The video is short. It was a hot day. I had a bad summer cold going on. The bugs were horrible and my son/camera man stole my hat that I cover with bug spray when I fly. I chose a battery (E-Flite 6S 2900) that some one here on RCG shipped to me for free about 6 or 7 years ago when I was into helis to keep the power low and the esc cooler. Amazingly that battery has a little sag but still holds a full charge and the cells are all good. Doing battery maintenance on all batteries twice a year does pay off! Despite all that, I loved the flight and the next two as well despite my son going back to the car to sit in the AC with my hat. He volunteered to come with me and take video without me asking, so I took him for a nice lunch afterwards. Apparently he wants to learn video editing, so I am helping him with that too.
