19x8 for break in and you can keep it on thereafter or fit a 20x6 or 20x8.

all Xoar or VEss

Yea i was thinking the 20/6 after break in i like my planes to slow down on landings and not really into high airspeed when flying. Thanks just checking out Valley View right now for props.

I am running a Vess 20b on mine. I don't run break in props. A 20x8 Zoar should be good.

Just posted this EXACT question before i saw this. Is a 19x10 too big? This is what Steve from Chief recommended.

On the last 3 I've put together with a 25% something and a DLE-35ra I've had great luck with the Xoar 19x8 beechwood/sword props. Spin up is electric fast and power is unlimited!! I'm finishing up a 74" slick prototype with a canister and will move on to a 20x6 Xoar, if the weather ever clears up I'll shoot some video then. In the meantime here's the maiden of my 71" AJ Slick with a DLE35/Xoar 19x8:

The 19x8 XOAR will be more quiet than a 20x6.

Wanted to update. My DLE 35ra is breaking in very nice. Does take a bit longer with Synthetic oil. Props i've tried thus far at 19X8 beachwood and 20x6 laminate xoar.

I like the 20x6 better for aerobatics. The 19x8 makes the plane faster. Only problem i see with the 20x6 is the prop DOES RIP. on the ground the 20x6 is being spun 8200RPM's.

Capt Crash: how is the Falcon 20x8

I am gettng about the same numbers on the ground with the 20/6 Zoar also and it rips up in the air. I like the 20/6 very well seems to slow down nice on landings. Over all very pleased with the motor .

Laminate got it thru Valley View rc drilled and ready to mount when it arrived. Checked the balance and it was good to go.

Exact same. I like how they pre-drill it for you. I don't think i'll be moving up to a 20x8. Only way i see myself doing that is if some of the neighbors / other pilots start complaining about the prop ripping.

Out of curiousity, anyone put a 3 blade on the DLE 35ra? What size?
