Prop selection for MAX 001 6:1 gear drive...help!!


Hi,

Im not sure what prop would be best for my flying styro p51 outfitted with a dymond motorsport max 001, 6:1 gear drive...any suggestions? I had previously tried the stock vari pitch prop at about 7-4 with a 6 cell 270 mah pack....it was underpowered and overweight...so try a 110 mah pack? how many cells?

thanks!

I know this is much later, but I am thinking about the Max 001 for a slow plane. How heavy is your plane and how big? A p51 sounds kind of fast for a 6:1 motor. Maybe you need more pitch?

It turned out the little max 01 never had enough power to fly the 51, at least on 6 150 mah's. I got sick of it and putit away for a while. The dymond people told me the max 01 wil work in it, i couldnt, but maybe i needed another cell or two. I think it weighed 6-8 oz, and had a ws of something like 24", I could be wrong though, it s been a while since of crunched any numbers on this project! Good luck!
