hi all a little update . I took the raket home build out today for it's first flight . well it did fly a little , There did not seem like there was enough power . I don't know yet what to do it should of got me up better than what it did . So could a different prop make that difference and where would I get a 130 prop from for the raket ?. not sure if I have the right reduction drive ratio . some pics of my paramotor on forum if any onecan tell from them.Or to get a tuned exhaust . any opinions what to do . ?

once I figure out it's rpm and changing the prop where sell them ? and if it's over or under pitched how would I figure out when I go to buy one to get the right pitch . I don't know much about pitch and how they do that may be the lad I know does as he's been flying for some yrs now .

I dont know how to work out the pitch so when I was playing with mine I got an adjustable one from GSC props in the states, but it is a heavy prop.

you can get carbon adjustable ones as well but if you can find some one to work out the pitch you need then a fixed pitch one would be the way to go
