Default OS 95V FS Prop Choice

What is a good choice of a 3 blade prop for for my 95V, other than a Master Airscrew or Solo? Brand and size, please. Thanks in advance

Default RE: OS 95V FS Prop Choice

O.S. had recommended the following prop sizes: Sport & Aerobatic 13x7-9, 14x6-8; Scale 15x6-8

For a 3-blade prop either keep the same diameter and drop one size in pitch, or keep the same pitch and drop one size in diameter. Your goal is the same static RPM when running at full-throttle with a properly-leaned mixture.

Brand is not relevant. In the final analysis, you choose the propeller that allows the airplane to fly in the manner you desire. You will usually have to try different propellers to get the performance you want.
