Default RE: Can you suggest a starting prop

Looks like the 14 X 6 should suit well then. I'll post back after its tried. I agree with getting that sort of rpm range as its loading is less in flight.
I also agree the 13 X 8 may be too fast or should I say make the plane too fast with insufficient vertical power.
and the 13 X 7 underprop the engine.
There is a huge difference however between a 14 X 6 Master prop (My preference and the APC. almost everybody elses it seems) the Master prop is said too be louder but I always get a lower idle from them than APC props. APC props give slightly higher RPM figures too.
