alvinm: I think it's a 9x4.7. I remember somewhere, Mike Greenshields posted the info... I have a 4.25 on order to try.

Here's Pcalc numbers:

EM300, 3.67:1, 7.5x5, 8x800AAE
14.1oz thrust, 39.1mph, 6.45a

EM300, 4.25:1, 9x4.7, 8x800AAE
15.1oz, 29.8mph, 7.14a

Not too impressive... But, testing will see!

Isn't the stock prop 7x 5.5 ?you have 7.5 unless that is what you meant.
I currently tried the 8x6 apc and got theses figures:

Prop RPM:7125
Prop Static Thrust oz:15.3

Prop In-flight Thrust oz:7..9 Prop Pitchspeed:40.5
mph
Approx Power System Weight: 8.844 oz Batteries + Motor + 10%
Full-throttle duration: minutes 7.26
Amps were around 6

Mike G. recommended the 9x6 APC-SF and that's what I tried. It has more pulling power than the stock setup, but top speed is a little lower as you would expect. It's a good gearing / prop combo for smaller fields.

Greetings,

I use a slowfly 10/4.7 on 8x800 nihms and will almost hover on a fresh charge. Also you may want to make a new set of longer landing gear for clearance.

With elevator/flap mixiing it will ROG off the grass in less than a foot. Cool mod for five bucks.

Greetings,

I used a Electron 6, a little tight, but rock solid.
