Default prop exchange for best performance wedgie

I have a wedgie ,its and older version of the zaggi wing but shorter in spand. I have a speed 400 electric motor on it with 9 cells and it moves pretty good except I broke the Gunther white plastic prop on landing, so now I have 3 props to choose from to replace the 5x4.3 push on Gunther prop, I have a maser air screw gf series 6x4.5 ,and as 5x4 grish nylon and a 7x3 master air screw gf series, now which prop will give the the most for power and duration

The 6x4.5 would double the load and the 7x3 would almost triple the load so the 5x4 may be your only option. I am not that good with electrics but here is a calculator that should give you the info you want.
