Many have mounted the DLE-55RA. The dimensions are almost the same as the regular 55. 55RA is 171mm mount to prop hub, 55 is 170mm. You need the same number of spacer plates to get to 184mm.

Try a 23x10. I had an EME-70 on a TopRC Zero, and it was quite fast with that prop. The 23x12 may be a bit much for it, not letting it wind out. The Zero seems to be a bit faster than the 190 with...
