    Try going down one inch in diameter with the same pitch. However, since 3-blade props don't come in a lot of sizes, you'll have to accept what is close. Usually, though, for scale models, you use a scale prop for display, and a 2-blade prop for flying. 2-blade props are more efficient, and can be found to fit the model better.

    Thanx Bax,

    I ran it on the 13.5 x 8 Bolly seems to heavy how can I say does not pull started at9800 and two 10oz tanks later a bit leaner
    10300 rpm this at a run IN setting. Next will try APC 13x 8 mutch less it weight as well next.

    Hear you on 1" less dai., will go for what I can get I think.

    Try to have the engine running in the high 11,000's for best power and operation, though high 10's could be OK. We tend to run the engine closer to 12,000 RPM at full throttle on the ground, and prop accordingly. O.S. recommends props more for noise reduction than anything else.
