Angel,

I think Airraptor has a typo on the prop he recommended, I'm not sure I've ever even seen a prop that size.

For the Q500 LS neslon, a more appropiate prop to start with would be an APC 8.8" x 8.75 or 8.8" x 8.5. Once you start to get use to the motor and getting the needle set properly, you can try out the other common Q500 Nelson props:

8.75" x 8.75 W
8.75" x 9 W
8.75" x 9.5 NN
8.75" x 8.25 N
8.75" x 8.5 N
8.8" x 9
8.8" x 9.25

Thats pretty much the range of props we have been using with the LS. You could talk to 5 different racers and they would probably recommend 5 different props. Since you are in Mexico at a higher elevation, I would stick with the lighter pitch props mentioned.
