Default 3 blade prop for Electric ?

Searching the forum for prop info on the Haker A60 I see 20.5" x 14" two blade
as a good starting point. That will require me to lower my landing gear on the
Brio so I was wondering if any of you are running 3 or 4 blade props in electric?

Mezlik is releasing a three bladed prop designed by Wolfgang Matt wich is ultra light and very good.

I'm running a 15.75x13-3 APC with a AXI motor in a Brio right now and it works well so far. It's a pretty heavy prop compared to a 2-blade electric one.

I've been flying a PT Models 20x13 3-blade in my Abbra. I've got the normal weight version =92 grams. There is also a light version. F3A Unlimited sells them. I am starting to like the prop. Good constant speed. I'm using a Plettenberg Advance with it.

We have both the regular and light versions available.
The testing on a Pletty Advance and on a Proteus yielded a very favorable result. I've been told the downline brake effect is noticable.
Thanks, Mike

I always preferred four-blade props on my YSs. I would be interested to see how one of those would perform on an electric motor.
