    I know I know. But there's no organized racing anywhere near here. There is a rc car track that dug a lake and was supposed to start racing but that hasn't happened yet.

    I know a few people where that's the case... Well... at least you have a decent test pond!

    I got a CNC 5014 today in the mail and ran it tonight. I don't know a ton about props but I picked it because the total pitch is 2.76 and I wanted to see what a CNC prop was like. Noticeable torque roll when you punch it but seemed to run pretty well and it hit 55.8mph! I pulled it in a bunch to check temps and so I wasn't running hard the entire time straight. On 4S it ran 38.1mph

    batteries - 110ish
    esc - 117-120
    motor - 110
    motor wires/connectors - 165
    battery wires - 105

    Not bad for a cnc prop. What battery connectors are you using? What connectors on the motor?

    The motor to ESC connectors are stock (I think they're 5.5mm?). The battery connectors I have changed to 5.5mm bullets. I guess I should have said that this is with the stock motor and ESC.

    Wow that's a huge prop, almost 2 inches in diameter

    Yes, and I think that's why it has more torque roll. I decided to try it because the pitch is 1.4 vs 1.6 on the common Octura props so the total pitch is supposed to be less than the stock prop.

    I spent a couple hours today cleaning up a new M645. It's still not very sharp but I had enough at that point so I went out and ran it. 54.6mph on 6S and 36.8 on 4S (stock ESC and motor). If you punch it from a dead stop, it will spin for about two seconds and then it hooks up and takes off. The delay isn't really a big deal and is kind of fun to watch. It doesn't seem to come into play in turns. I think there's probably more speed in this prop if I had it sharper. That's just a guess though. P.S. I still don't have the option to attach pictures to my posts. Do you have to have a certain post count first?

    Sorry to hijack thread, but I am attempting to attach a .jpg that I've uploaded from my hard drive.

    There is an icon on the reply toolbar for inserting an image. You don't have that?

    I'm the one that hijacked it. No worries. No, I only have the option to insert an image from a URL. Same thing in advanced reply.

    Interesting. Larger diameter at lower pitch came out ahead. I would have expected the 1815 to be the leader.

    I'll put a data logging Esc in it. I'm purposely trying to over prop it to be honest. I'm testing an Esc for someone to test its limits.

    I'll find out but I'd bet the 1914 would be safe. It's less prop than the m645

    Ok, I just did some free mods and just realized the trim tabs were pouting a bit down and one more than the other. Explains why I had to trim the rudder a lot to the left. It's so close to 60 at this point, I'm pretty sure my few mods will put it in the 60's. Here what I did:

    Sanded the ride area with 400 grit (paint is super super thin so keep that in mind if you do it....you will sand through in a couple of seconds)

    Sharpened the rudder
    Sharpened turn fins. One of mine had a slight gouge (my fault I'm sure) so I fixed that.


    Charging batteries. Stay tuned.

    Look great. Lot of excellent info in this thread already. Did those trim tabs and rudder match up to the stock mounting holes by chance?

    Nope. Not even close. Lol. But at least I was able to hide the original holes easily.

    This trip was a bust. I ran the wrong prop. Wasn't paying attention. Just had too much going on. Still ran high 50's. Post video later.

    That's kind of what I expected to hear. Really awesome though!
