View Full Version : Prop choice on X-2 with FlyHigh system added
03-23-2010, 08:36 PM
I have an 08 X-2, and am adding the FlyHigh system to it. I wanted to get some suggestions on what pitch prop people are running to pull all the new weight. I have the MCX engine, and I have called a guy I know at the factory from MC and he was not able to help me much. I am currently running 14.50 X 14.25 on the boat. Thanks

where is TMC#1 with that reply he always posts on questions like this?

The 14.25 X 14.5 should be a good prop to start with. I'd suggest running the boat with the new ballast set up with the 14.25 X 14.5. If you find the prop is not strong enough I can suggest another size.

Thanks for the confirmation Eric. I will give it a try and let you know if I need anything else.
i am pretty sure the prop size that eric recommended is the one you already have. i have a 07 x2 and it came with that prop size.

Hey not to thread jack this, but on my 08 X2 I have been running the same prop as the X-star, I want to say 15.25 x 17.... not sure on the details, my question is for Eric and I should make sure I'm not doing any damage on the boat with that prop, its pretty big. I have the stock prop as a back-up.

Confirm the size and I can let you know, 15.25 X 17 does not sound right.

orx1, i bet you're running 14.75 x 15.5 xmp edge.
that's what i have and was new i believe for 08 on many X-2's with MCX

i have that particular prop on my '08 xstar with L18. talk about torque....whew!!! my '05 xstar with mcx had the 14.25 x 14 and it was a great prop for that configuration. i am interested to see what eric comes back with as his suggestion. btw, both of those props were suggested by eric to replace the stock props which were both a 13.7 x 17.5.

The 14.75 X 15.5 is now the stock prop. Should have no issues running this size.

Thanks Eric, I will give this thread back to the orginal owner now. The stock prop on my 08 was a 14.25 x 14.5
