New to electrics, Prop Sizes anyone??

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I have a Park 400 going into a tiger 400ep arf, and I want to know what I need to buy for the prop setup. The motor is 4200KV and I am going to be running 2s LiPo only. Would I want to go with a direct drive or a geared drive, and if geared, what ratio?

I also have a Nippy 0808/98 which is going to be run in my Nemesis3D, 27" wingspan Profile 3D electric. I dont know much about this motor, other than it was recomended for 2s LiPo setups. What do I need as a prop for this one?

The Nippy

I fly the Nippy 808 098 on my Shock flyer with 3 cells and 10 x 4.7 props it works just fine. I've had the set up flying for about a year, the only thing I would change is the wheels, they are too small. Go for some othe GWS offerings of no less than around thirty mm in Dia. Even on pavement those little hard plastic stock things give me grief.
