Default CONVERT STOCK EFLITE SCIMITAR (pusher prop jet) FROM 4 TO 6 CELL

Stock motor is a 32 size BL outrunner 1010kv. Since I do not have any other 4 cell systems I would like to convert to 6 cell ie 2 3 cell in series like the Splendor.
Charged 4 cell fresh at 4.15 v = `16.6 x 1010 = 16,766 rpm
Charged 6 cell fresh at 4.15v = 24.9 x 1010 = 25,249 rpm

Looks like a prop problem stock 10/8 31.416" circumference /12 = 2.618 x 16,766 = 43,893 ft/min tip = 732 ft/sec below the general 900ft/sec sonic
at 24.9 v 1101 ft/sec going or gone sonic.

Can anyone direct me to a good prop for the 25krpm and especially if 3 blade would help ground clearance. Already put tape guards on the rudders, prop slings grass that will stick into the foam. And any expected watt pull info to do it.

I cannot find a manual or instructions for the BL32 Brushless Outrunner Motor, 1010 Kv not even on e-flite, looks like an orphan. trying to find watt limit.

Any guidance appreciated
Thank you
Charles
