I was curious to what some twin cat owners/ builders think the optimal size props would be for a DF Explorer?

Of course KV & Voltage matters but, what size prop is too big?

I was thinking of running a pair of 4068- 2560kv 6pole motors or a pair of ARC 3655-1 2800kv 4 ple motors. I have both.

Any suggestions??

on 4S ... Id use x442 detongued at the rpm offered as above
although abc1616/3 would give a greater burst of speed.

What's too big is the second question to ask .. . What's too hot is the first :smile:

Thanks, I have just the props.

Too big would be when handling goes out the window I suppose. I do want to turn at some point, LOL...

I tried x450/3 on the 36" maritimo, twin CR 6S 1800Kv.. great hole shots and fast as heck, but massive prop walk/torque in corners... rolled over easy.
This creates a problem unique to guys who ride vehicles like ours... Ive fond memories of getting wet feet rescuing rc debris ... :smile:
