Prop for 35% Carden Edge 540 with DA 150

So I have been flying the Edge with the 3w 106 and I am not happy with the power to weight going to take it to the next level. I got the Da 150 in yesterday and starting the mod for the plane and wondering what prop to go with. The plane is going to weigh 32 pounds with the DA 150. I was thinking a 32X10????

use the 30/10 3 blade its gonna be to over powered with the 2 blad props plus the 3 blade will get you some ground clearance

Edit: changed from a 12 pich to a 10. I was mistaken when first posted on the pitch sorry.

A zdz 160 champ would have been a better choice, less than 1lb more than a 106 FYI.

Got a deal on the motor to try it out for free so that is why I went with the DA can't argue with free.

I guess you cant argue with free, but IMO you wont be happy with the extra 2-3lbs either.

I know you probably already have your mind made up but I would look for ways to lighten your airframe and save the 150 for another plane.

Also, are you also considering all the tailweight you will have to add as well? I dont know how the 106 isnt enough for that plane, considering I have flown it numerous times with a 106. But, to answer your origninal question, you will make the most power with a 30x10 2 blade.

That was my original plan was to have one built for a 150 size motor but then I was unsure if I would like it. I think the best I can hope for is 30 pounds with a 150 size on the carden. So i thought I would just try it with my current airframe. With the bigger motor on there how much lighting do you really want do to the motor box??? You can lose weight in the tail when you build but you need the weight back there for balance with the bigger motor so no gain there. Thought about doing the lighting in the tail and moving the wing forward??? Lots of things to think about so the easiest way was to throw a 150 on there and see what I thought with the extra power and if it is going to be a fat cow at 32 pounds. Anyone flown a 35% carden at 32 pounds???

Built a custom battery tray in the tail for all the batts move the servo tray back also. The battery tray is complete. It is very close now. I agree the 106 is enough for the standard 3D stuff just trying to fly outside the normal box IE climbing flat spins and some other stuff we do with our electrics that the big birds don't have the power to do.

Well, if you want that kind of power to weight, a carden anything is not a good place to start. I have a WH 33% 260 with a BME 115, it has the power to weight that you are looking for, but I dont think you will get there with your setup you intend. A good match would be something like an Aerotech 37% edge, just a tad bit bigger than the 35%, but would rock and roll with the 150 and more wing area to help it out in that aspect.
