i'm not flying a 28 inch model, i'm flying the 48" juka on a scorpion 3014-18 and a 12x3.8. give mike morgan at DW a call, he'll be happy to recommend a power system and prop for it.

I have always stayed with the recommended prop for most of my airplanes, but have just learned what the right prop can do. I have been flying my Hobby Lobby Yak 55 with the TURNIGY 2204-14T 19g Outrunner. I have tried several APC electric props 7-6 to 9-3.8 and always thought the plane lacked power. Yesterday I tried a GWS EP 8040 and it flew like a totally different plane. I had been using a APC 8-3.8 which I thought should be similar but what a difference.


The GWS is thinner and lighter so I guess that makes the difference.

hahah good ideas, Chellie - unfortunately I got excited to fly mine and I put it up without packing tape on the LE's or the CF Tow I have since added to the underside of the fuse.

Anyways, long story short I forgot to check the aileron direction before I tossed it and ened up having to fly it backwards for a few minutes until I could try to deadstick it in without destroying it - I managed to get it home with just a bit of a gouge in one of the LE's from a branch lol but man, it flew GREAT!

All I had in the box was the APC 9x3.8SF but it flies great with the x-thin Zippy 1000mAh batteries. It was really nose heavy at first, too. Thanks so much for the recommendation!
