Default WWI Props

Hey Y'all. Im a newbie to electric flight. I just picked up a E-Flite Albatros Dva and I am looking for a wooden WWI style prop. Could not find anything specifically made for electric motors and I read somewhere that I could use a standard wooden prop. This is all well and good but would I have to go down a size in prop due to the added weight of the standard prop? What about the hole in the center. Im using a eflite 32 motor and itr has a 5mm shaft. Isnt this smaller than the holes that are drilled in standard props (the 14x7 size I need)?

Would appreciate any help you could offer!

There are plenty of wooden 14x7 to choose from e.g. http://www.hobbylinc.com/htm/xoa/xoapjn14x7.htm, but for any of them, you'd need to drill out the hub bore to accommodate an 8mm collet-type or set-screw-type adapter (for 5mm motor shaft).
