Thanks for all the info guys! I guess my 10x5E is a bigger prop then I pictured in my head. Not much smaller then the 12x6SF. So that's what I'll use for a bit and put another order in to greathobbies. (Just ordered some glue and hardware) RC has got to be just as addictive as crack cept you have something to show for your money.

Breeze, you mentioned breaking in the battery. This leads me to a question about lipos. Since last year when I finally got bored on my trainer and moved to lipos and building foamies with ails. My main battery that I've been using is a TP 2S 1320mah. I noticed after about 6 cycles of this battery it seemed to get better. It seemed like the power was way better for about the first 5mins of flight. Do lipos get better after a few cycles, or is that my mind playing tricks on me?

Well, that's what some manufacturers say...I try to take it easy on my Lipos for the first few cycles, I believe Thunder Power recommends 5-7C for the first few cycles. I've never done any really hard testing on this, but I figure, they recommend it, so I'll do it!

And yes, your Lipos probably DID get stronger after a few flights, they often do.

By the way, if you don't feel that your 10x5 is strong enough, just slap the 12x6sf on it and take it easy on the throttle. That's what i would do.
