Default what size 3 blade prop for a fox 3.2

I will be running a fox 3.2 on an edge & it has very low ground clearance, I was thinking a 3 blade prop would help with this issue. What size 3 blade prop would give the best performance on this 3.2 on a 15# plane???
Any help would be much appreciated!!

I had a Taurus 3.2 and ran a MENZ 19x10. It turned it around 6500 when the engine was new. May want to try a Mejzlik 19x10.

YOU MIGHT WANT TO TRY A 3W 21X11 OR A MEZJLIK 22X10. I SWING THESE ON A STOCK G-62. THE FOX HAS WAY MORE POWER THAN A G-62. MAYBE THE 3W 21X10 SINCE YOU MAY HAVE GROUND CLEARANCE PROBLES. THE 19X10 WILL GIVE YOU LOTS OF SPEED, BUT YOU SACRIFICE VERTICAL CLIMB. A CLUB MEMBER HAS AN AEROWORKS 30% WITH A FOX 4.2 AND IT HAS GROUND CLEARANCE PROBLEMS. HE IS SWINGING A TWO BLADED PROP. THE FOX 4.2 WILL SWING A 24" PROP. THIS PLANE IS REALLY OVER POWERED, BUT HE LIKES IT.
