    The Elam only has a 1500KV motor in it, vs. the 2030KV of the UL-1. As such, you need to use a prop with a LOT more pitch to match the speed. However, the Elam hull is also a bit narrower and shorter, so too much prop will affect the handling a bit.

    To get you started, see if you can find my Miss Elam Race Prep thread, here on this site. I went further than most would want to, but you can get an idea of some of the things that can be done.

    I have many successful races on mine using the stock electronics and get really good speeds using a couple of different props. The X645 is probably a good place to start.
