Default Best prop for vericle

I have a .46 fx on an ultra stick 40, I'm having trouble getting it to hang on the prop. I am having it rich, but if it was tuned for max rpm i think it could hang at full throttle. I realize the engine is in the lower power range, but what would be the best prop for climbs and hoving. Right now I have a 11X7, I think a 11X5 would do better, and which companies pitch it the most productive?

I think either prop would do. Also try a 11-4 power point its good. I learn from trail and error. Everyone develops there own prefaces.

Try an 11x5 APC, that will give good vertical and speed.

On this size engine, an APC 12.25x3.75 is the best you will find for hovering.
