Having tried both the Irvine 14 turn Cobalt (35 over here) and the Permax 450 Turbo (15 over here) in the same Zagi airframe I would conclude that the 450 Turbo gave the Zag a bit more ummmppphhh than the cobalt (same prop, same cells, same airframe).

While you are on the phone to NC, ask about the Graupner 6304. 100 grams. We have had very good performance with 8 cells 800AR and 6x4 Tornado or 6x5 Aeronaut.
