I had always thought that was the foundation of this hobby.. .all the give and take information that floats in and out.

Where did you find the APC 6x3?
Would love to try some of those!

Emp does not have an r prop, and if those you found on hk are balanced, keep buying them! Emp are always out of balance. I've bought some apc 6x3 props and have yet to try them.

Let us know which ones you like greg - the EMP or the APC

I've built and flown the SU-37 MK2 with great success. 2700KV motor that everybody seems to use and the awesome EMP 6x3 propeller. As the props are all puller ones, I have to use thread lock to keep the nut in place.

I decided to replace the EMP one with a pusher prop and ended up ordering these:
https://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/__53901__Master_Airscrew_Propeller_6x3R_Pusher_Prop.html

All of the props where balanced beautifully right out from the box so thumbs up for that but compared to the EMP props, the power wasn't the same. The plane felt like it had lost ~30% of its power. No more unlimited vertical etc. Also the battery was way hotter after the flight compared to the flight with the EMP props.

So, the question is; is there a EMP comparable 6x3 pusher prop available at all? and what is it?

Hope you can help me.

ps. Maiden with the SU-37:

Have you tried a 6x4 API prop ?

6X3 Props, those for racing quads work. Check out the HQ props (don't go to HKing and pick up Gemfan props, those sucks). Other than that, 6X3X3 that E3_Scott uses from RCTimer works awesome, 6X4X3 MasterAirscrew is too good, 6X4 Aerostar CarbonFiber prop is unbeatable.

And--stupid question--have you checked if you got your prop backwards or motor spinning the wrong way? I used the 6X3 MasterAirscrew and it worked totally fine. Some of these props they do still generate rear thrust when spinning the wrong way (usually they would generate forward thrust).
