Default Electric prop or gas prop


I have this AXI 5320 motor.
I was planning to run it with APC 19x10E.

But I actually have a 19x10 carbon prop meant for gas engines.
Wonder what are the obvious advantages/disadvantages of running gas props versus electric props?

well i use a wooden prop on my electric pt-17 and it works great its a 10x6 prop the only thing that you have to worry about for puting gas prop to electric planes is the weight of the prop
