Default MDS .15 pylon questions.

Hey everyone. I just got a new MDS .15 pylon motor with the MDS tuned pipe. My questions: 1) What prop do I run with this motor? 2) Do I need to drill and tap the pipe for a pressure fitting? 3) Can I get different size spinners for it? Any advice on the engine or what airframes it would work in would be appreciated! Thanks.

I have no experience with this engine, but go to APCs' website and look up props in the 6.5x5 - 7x5 size range. Their website is tough for me to navigate, so what I do is make a list of sizes and call them to place the order.
Some .15s can be very picky about prop load and will benefit from narrowing and lightening the blades.
