Luvin' 4S in the EXP

A good friend of mine "Doc" Austin recently gave me an APC 12x6 to try on my EF Extra EXP.  The prop I was using was a Turnigy Wood Light Electric 12x6 prop, and I wasn't getting the performance I was expecting; it was good, but not great. After about 3 seconds in the air with the APC prop I felt a HUGE difference! Not only was there more power, but the airflow around the plane and its control surfaces was smoother, and I could FEEL it. I was utterly amazed!

Anyway, here's the video. Enjoy!

  1. Nice vid Tom. That's wringing it out in style!

    The APC 12x6E is hard to beat. The only prop I know of that is spec'd slightly better is PA's VOX 12x7. Compared to the APC, the VOX is touted to have a little better efficiency and 3.8A lower current draw too; as tested on PA's Thrust 30 motor. However, I haven't yet tried the VOX wooden prop, but it's on my to-do list.
