In the photo Ivano is using a 16x14 APC prop.  He is going to test a MENZ 17x12 to reduce the speed slightly.

He is a member of the 'Fruppo Modellisti Carignano' and he comments that the RCV is appreciated for many reasons, the main being:

  • It is Very very easy starting (and safe!) from behind, my engine start after 1/2 second
  • The fast response and throttle linearity
  • The realistic sound
