Default Which F-4?

I assume you mean the Lanier ARF because you are talking 45 sized- if so:

This plane comes out nose heavy so the Webra would get my vote... I love the Rossi but it is heavier-

I run a YS-45 on a 10x7, the Webra or Rossi would pull those fine or 10x6- I tried a 9x9 but it no workie...maybe 9x7 or9x8?

Let me know if you have any questions about the build- I have many flights on mine and it is great!

Default hmm

Follow whatever Webra says on break-in...

I would think 10x7 or 10x8 for speed- I was gonna try a 9x8 since the 9x9 was just too much pitch-

Good luck,
james
