I flew the Sea Fury this morning with the FSK/Manzano blades. Very nice! Is it as fast as the stock 10x8? No. Is it fast? Oh yes, it is still much better than scale with the BP/Suppo 2814! Vertical is still unlimited, and the prop makes a lot of noise at anything over half throttle. On the down side, landings are a little trickier. You HAVE to keep some throttle open and fly it onto the ground, otherwise the prop slows it down too much. I ended up stalling about a foot off the ground when I chopped throttle too soon, and it dropped hard onto the pavement Lost a wheel collar in the process so couldn't make another try. Maybe I'll try again this afternoon. There is also more prop effect when flying slow, so you have to steer it more. With the 2 bladed prop the plane tracks a lot straighter at slow speed.
