    Anybody want to start an Excel spread sheet and maybe there will be some GSN swag heading your way?

  2. Is it possible for GSN to host a google drive or some common place where things like the aforementioned spreadsheet might be located? Maybe a file folder on this website?

    OH
    Let me look into the google drive deal. Find out if they have a limit or something...
     
  4. Can definitely do an Excel spreadsheet if it's still in anyone's interest. Of course more data would be nice. How would we get the info from everyone (e-mails, PMs ? ? ?)?

    But, stopped into this thread to ask, anyone got a Falcon 3 blade on a DA170 that pulls nice with very little ripping? Please share if you do. Some new three blades are out and want to get one for a brand spankin new 170. Feel free to PM or whatever. I appreciate your 2 cents in advance :shake:
     
  5. I always use a 28x12 3 blade for the 170. I'm not sure what options Falcon has in that size range.
     
  6. Thanks for the answer REYN3545! They have a 29x13. Brand new motor. Would it load the motor up too much you think? IMAC plane primarily. In Intermediate now but will need to pull the plane into the upper classes as well where you may have a number of roll/snap maneuvers on the uplines.

    Call up Steve Thomas at Falcon propellers. He had some brand new off the press props down at Nall and they were trying some out. Saw a couple of new three-blade.
     
  8. I actually fly for Falcon and talk to Steve and Julie quite a bit. They don't recommend props based on engines is basically what they've said. The 29x13 is out of stock right now anyway but wanted to see if anyone had one on a 170 to see if it was likely a good fit for a 38 pound Carden. I was at Nall on the 3D line all week but only had an EF104 with us. Trying to feel comfortable about having one of those new 3 blades set aside for my Oracle scheme Carden(new to me but got it from Brad Petty a little while back). It would be a waste to get the prop if it's going to load up the motor too much in the vertical. PS - Really admire your work and your contributions in the hobby, Terry. Thanks for adding your thoughts on my question.

    Anyone using a GP123? Plan on getting one so interested what prop to use.
     
  10. Rolling circle: I bought a Falcon 29/13 3 blade to use on my GP176 EVO on Proflows. It was a bit too much load in my opinion. On pipes it would be great. For sale cheap if you want it hehe.

    Knife edge: I'm using a Biela 26/10 3 blade on my GP123 and I really like it. Works good for IMAC and freestyle flying. Lots of power and good braking.
