Default eflite outrunner and hobbylobby airblaster...

I have a Hobby Lobby Airblaster with an E-flite 400 920 kv outrunner motor. The prop sizes recommened for this motor range from 9x7 to 11x4.75. I have a 10x6 cam prop which works nice and has great vertical performance, but sometimes I would just like a little more speed and to conserve battery life. If anyone could run these numbers through a moto calc program of some kind(I'm not familiar with how these programs work) and tell me if a 8x8 or 8x9 or 7x 10(if anyone sells these sizes) or what my other options are. I'm using an E-flite 20 amp speed control as well. One more thing if I am goimg for speed should I go with an e-prop or sf slow flyer prop? Any help or points in the right direction would be greatly appreciated.

Yes Richie, please don't "shotgun post" the same question to multiple forums. First off, it "annoys the locals" which makes them less likely to answer in a productive way. Second off, its unnecessary because most people read multiple forums, and it's highly unlikely that nobody will read your post. Third off, its more work for you, because now you have to follow THREE threads instead of one. Fourth off, its more work for people in the future who want to benefit from the exchange; they have to hunt down three threads to get the entire conversation. Shotgun posting is so disadvantageous that there is a specific rule against it on RCU in our [link=http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/RCU_Community_Policies/m_377662/tm.htm]POLICIES[/link]

Please, and this goes for everyone who reads this, limit yourself to one post in one forum for a particular question. Don't worry about getting the wrong forum, just pick the one you think fits the question best and go with it. If you're way off your rocker... Well, that's what mods are for. We'll move the post to where it's most appropriate, and will get the most action.

This same post sat unreplied for more than a week. I did not know it was against a specific rule or I wouldn't have made multiple posts...my bad.
However I now have two replies and still no help.
