How'd that prop work for ya I let you try out? I got the same speed as my regular prop that has less pitch with my Vagabond but it wanted to slightly porpoise because of less face on the prop. Your Ranger seems to have more weight towards the front so I'm thinking you wont have the porpoising problem with it,
