Micro Tundra with a 5040 prop & another crash

Micro Tundra with a 5040 propeller (6 min 18 sec)

Yes , I did it again !

To low . to slow , and my thumb twitched in the wrong direction and

5040 prop ! The motor loves it . sings along really nice !
Whats lacking is Mojo .. Thrust ! Forward momentum .

Really could use some more RPM !
That 6040 just seems to load up the MT too much , good Mojo but we want more ? and we dont want to cook the motor .
Even that 1306 I got . does not improve things much with the 6040 . Though it does spin the prop with less effort but more current .
A higher KV 1306 ? Perhaps .. Spin the 5040 harder ? Or a 6030 harder ?
Either way , I will fly again with a 6030 since at full throttle it does appear to produce the best thrust .
ANd the last time I did kind of break that 6030 , so it never got a look in .
