Hi dave- thanks for the comments, I was at the field again today (Monday) and got the prop selection sorted out. Seems of stock props, a 14 X 6 Vess scimitar is the best. I am however going to trim the diameter on a couple of Master Airscrews and test. The sound is awesome, at idle each cylinder speaks, of course as RPM's build they blend together but still very distinct. I have run many radials but this is my first with a Keleo collector ring, excellent!

I don't believe a MAS is even close to a Vess.

Hey Roger- affirmative on that. The Vess profile is far better aerodynamically, not only confirmed by perofmance figures but the old ear-balls tell us the same story. A real plus on the Vess is they are factory balanced by the polyeurothane coating thickness.

Probably stay with a Vess 14 X 6, but I want to get a couple of Vess 13 X 8's just to satisfy my love to tinker.

Hi Guys:

I posted a video of the maiden, didn't have my "noggin cam" but I did have my tripod set up with the Samsung. You can see a little bit and hear the music. If you watch, shut it off at 2.0 minutes, I forgot to shut off the camera. Taxi back tripped up in one of our "ditches" but not too bad for the maiden. Will get a better video when I get a chance to have Dave fly it for me while I video.

Hi Dave, I can't make Sunday. I will be out today (SaturdaY). I am anxious for you to fly R-3 so I can get a decent video. Maybe we can "gitter done" next weekend.
