Default Best prop rpm for geared motors

With so many different rpm inrunners and so many different ratio gearboxes, is there an ideal propeller rpm to shoot for??
with a 4200kv motor on a 14oz plane what gear ratio should i use for best performance on a extreme flight Yak.

Default RE: Best prop rpm for geared motors

I think that for electric airplanes the more important quanity is how many watts your motor is poducing and not rpms. You will adjust the watt output of the motor by changing the prop pitch and legnth.
