    I have a DA drill jig and I use the same holes that are used for the 150. Having said that, before you drill into an expensive prop, double and triple check it. Also, if you are using a spinner, you have to make sure the orientation is correct or you will have a mess. The back plate, the cone and the prop must all be set up properly as far as orientation. Mejzlik carbon spinners, like what I have, come cut for the prop but not drilled. It's like a mini puzzle! The spinner cone isn't even drilled. Some have bought their spinners from Falcon props. Len is a big user of their props and could possibly chime in.

    I actually copied what others in this group use for a prop on the DLE 170 and the S props are reported to be a little quieter. The tips are a bit swept back compared to others. It's a sexy propellor to to say the least! I have had great results with that prop. I have always been a fan of 3 blade props even when I flew biplanes for aerobatics.

      With a 170, you can use a slightly bigger prop than that if you wanted.
