Here you go..APC 20.5X14 electric. And you will have to get a prop bolt from your neighborhood hardware store, a little longer than the one that comes with the motor.

The Himax 210 is a pretty versatile motor and can use lots of prop sizes depending on what plane you are flying. Personally, I have used 20.5x14 APC, 20.5x14.5 Falcon, 21x14 Falcon and APC, 21x13.5 Falcon and 21.5x13 Falcon. All worked well and final choice was pretty dependent on the plane, the motor was happy with any of those. I am sure there have been plenty of other sizes tried by other flyers.

I completely agree with Woodie, the Himax will handle all the props listed above. All depends on the plane & total flying weight in my case. My heavy Impression drained my bats below 20% on anything with a pitch of 14.5 or 15, so my best prop was the APC 21x13.5. Always landed with around 25% capacity remaining flying the Advanced sch. Old plane now hanging up, new plane on the way
