Are you running a separate ign battery? What are you doing for ign kill switch?

What servos are you using?
sorry i lied the lipo are 5200 mah each

also using an ibec for a kill switch but running ignition on separate battery (probably)

Yep that size packs will work fine, You can use a Tech Aero ibec and save the battery weight too.

Else use something like the Power sparkswitch to run the ign. (its uses separate battery)Or the JR killswich.

Servos look great, Hear good stuff about the Pro modeler

Downsides to lipo is you should remove from the plane to charge and unlike Li-Fe & Li-ion they must be taken down to storage voltage after use,

Where as Li-fe & Liion can be left at any charge stage for months with no ill effect, But is advisable to put into storage after a few weeks of no use to get best life from them.

Thats Being said all that gear is going to work great

I'm thinking of doing a 3 blade prop for this YAK. Now taking into consideration that this plane is way overpowered with the DA150L that in it what would be the best bet? Smaller for more RPM or larger for more torque given the motor could easily swing it. DA recommends one of these 3 sizes for 3 blade.

29x12n
28.5x12
28x12
