Okay I may be pushing it with all these questions but had good response to the last two threads.Started off using an18x8 as suggested for break in on an 2.18MDS in an OMP 80 Edge540 switched after a tank full maybe 2 to a zinger 20x6 Broke it on a deadstick(engine needed more break in) runs fine now and doing nothing but getting better Replaced it with a 20x8 apc prop which it handles well .Would I be better off with a 20x6 OR???? for 3D flying

You want to use the right prop for the engine to keep it reliable. I have a moki 2.1 with an apc 20x8 wide. My reason was more for noise or lack of noise but it works well. It is a little heavy so My throttle response is slower than with a wood or carbon prop. But at 89db the slow throttle is worth the quiet. Find out what prop will get the best engine performance and this will be a good 3d prop. Probably the 20x6
