Got me a V2 OMP Edge. Thinking of putting a DLE35RA on it. Any prop suggestions?
Thanks

Mine has an APC 21x10E... but the Mejzlik 21x10 (gas) kicks ass, at the expense of a few more amps. :lol:

Don't think the DLE35 can handle a 21x10... :dk:

I think this plane was originally flown with an OS160, the E setup is around 6 to 6.5 HP, RTF weight is 12.5#.

I will soon be trying a 6354-270 E motor on it just to see what props it can handle. The 6354 will go to a 65" OMP yak at some point.

By most accounts the DLE35 is a little stronger than their 30; the 30 likes a 19x8 Xoar pretty well. I would start there, or maybe a 20x6 Xoar...

I'm looking for a new prop for my Edge too. Looking at the Xoar 19x8 or 20x6 for my Moki 1.8. Whats better, the Beechwood or the Laminated Xoars? The Beechwood look like they have a wider blade, but it's hard to tell.

How do you like it with the Moki?
I have an OS BGX-1 doing nothing I'd like to try it on it.

I like it. I've got a zinger 20x6 that I've had on it for years and it does OK, that's why I'm looking for a new prop. Hovers about 3/4 throttle, so not a lot of pullout. Running 5% nitro though. I'd like to find a header and pipe for it, but I'm thinking for an engine that size it would be quite a pricey endeavor. I love the plane, but it's a pain to take to the field.

Get rid of the zinger, worst props ever imo. Mine loved 5% and apc props and as far as engines go I liked more than most.

Yeah, I know I've got to get rid of the zinger. Trying to decide what to go with.

Xoars are a little more spendy than some of the cheaper options, but for a wood prop, they work really well. APC gas props in that size range don't seem to be as good, and I flew a DLE30 powered Extra 260 with a Master Airscrew 20x6 and thought it sucked. Falcon or Mejzlik carbon in that 19-20" range are very nice, but much more spendy. $15-20 for a Xoar in that size is money well spent, IMO

I had an XYZ53cc twin on my Aeroworks 80" Profile Extra... 22x8 Xoar is that engine's favorite prop.
I've got a KFC bucket full of 20X6, 20X8 and 20X10 Zingers if you want to stay with the same junk...

Case, that's a nice collection of paint stirrers.

IMO, the laminated Xoars are heavier but more durable and the regular woodies spool up a bit faster.
That said, it doesn't take much of a dork on a 20"+ prop to render it unusable.
