Default Prop size for a Saito .65

What size prop would you use on a Saito .65 4-stroke? It's going on a fun-scale Fokker DR-I and I want to get some prop around that big cowl. The instruction sheet says 11x7 3/4 (if they even make such a size). I would like to use a 13x6 or maybe 12x7. Would that be too much prop?

I use a 14x6 on my OS .91 Surpass and it works great! I haven't run this Saito yet.

Opinions?

Saito recommends in the manual:

Sport: 12x6, 12x8, 13x8
Scale: 13x8, 14x5, 14x6
Aerobatics: 11x9, 12x8, 13x6

I think I use a 12x8 on a Telemaster 40 that I use for a fun fly airplane.

Default Prop size...

Thanks Mscic for the info. What RPM's were you getting with a 12x8 prop?

Anybody else run a Saito .65?

Got 3 Saito 65's been runnin them for years. Most things I fly are scale I have been using Master Airscrew 12X6 scale type props on the WW! stuff and a master airscrew 13X6 on the CG Cub on Floats. I use Morgan 15% and Fox miricle plugs.
I fly at 2200 foot elevation.
