Default 05 - 600 power otions, slowflying trainer

Hi there

I have just built an own design trainer, Its a really thick wing so should be a slowflyer, i was thinking of powering it with a 540 and 6 gp3700mah cells, the wingspan is about 1.2m is it possible to run any props direct drive, i do have a gearbox also but i cant find the adapter for the props and would rather go direct drive for less stuff to break if i crash

so i have a 11turn 05, which is prolly a gearbox only prop, and a 17turn, and a 600 out of a cordless drill.

options please ?

- ok i posted this elsewhere and may have been in the wrong place

i managed to score a folding prop and adapter today, it is not a huge prop but has a fair bit of pitch, when coupled with the 11 turn it creates insane amounts of thrust so much so that i think it will be overkill, the 600 on the other hand produces a good amount of thrust but not insane like the 11 turn, i dont really want to be running at half throttle due to the heat buildup in the esc (i have available to me a astro 207d, some car esc and a 30amp parkflier, with the 11 turn no doubt id have to run the astro

any ideas what i can do here ?
