    Can I run a Solas 14/19R?

    With the mods I got below, can I push a solas 14/19? My 14/17 would only peak out at 7500 RPM so I tweaked her abit and it flys right up to 8100 now. But now I go about 7 to 8 MPH slower . So its gotta be the prop thats causing my slowness. By the way, i had to tweak because I went from 500 ft elevation to around 4,200 ft, and Im here to stay.

    I think you'll want to try the stock prop

    Im not being argumentative, but why the stock prop? My 14/17R was only topping out at 7500 RPM because i went from 500 ft to 4200 ft elevation, then i tweaked the prop.

    Because the stock prop is weakest out of the 3 you have and that's what you need.

    prop

    i would keep the prop i have and send it to Jerry to have it tweaked or read the how to bend your prop thread in the how to section and do it yourself.

    I already did tweak my prop. And the results were great as far as RPM goes. My speed went down though. How much does speed have to do with the trailing edge of the prop? I thougtht it was mostly RPM on the trailing edge.

    i would say your speed left because of the elevation change not the prop bending

    No amount of prop change is going to get your speed back. You lost your speed because you are now at 4200' and have lost power. Since you lost power, you lost rpm. You tweaked your prop to get your rpm back, and you re-gained a tiny bit of power (more rpm = more boost = some power back), but the power loss in the first place was caused by loss of air density due to higher elevation.

    You can't prop your way back to the same power level.
