Default prop question

I have a wattage ultimate bipe with a colbalt 400 and a inline 2.25:1 gear box.I have a 11x4.7 prop on it now, I was wondering what prop would make it pull better and maybe a little faster.thanks for the help

Default RE: prop question

I would imagine that something like an Aeronaut 10x7 would be a better bet - more pitch = more speed, and dropping the diameter an inch would allow the rpms to be maintained without increasing current draw.

Cheers, Phil
