Default Prop for Hacker Q80 11S

I bought a used De Ja Vu that has a Hacker Q80 11S.

The previous owner was running an APC 21x14 on it and I'm interested in getting a new prop. Since the APC 21x14 is no longer available, what would be another good prop to try?

I don't mind paying for a carbon prop and the replacement doesn't need to be another APC unless that is what is suggested.

It's all about preference and flying style. On one of my Caelus', I have a PT carbon 21X13 Wide. My other Caelus has a Falcon carbon 19.5X13. I really like this one. A little power hungry, especially in the wind, but worth it.

Depends on the airplane / flying style to some extent. The 11S can handle anything your batteries will. On the Allure I like the Falcon 20x13-3B for smoothness, speed, and quiet until it gets really hot (low air density) - not too bad on mAh. The Mejzlik 20.5x12W provides similar performance with fewer mAh. In hot weather the Mejzlik 21x13EL works really well, a bit fast as AD improves and can use mAh. When the weather's lousy and you want more speed the Mejzlik 21x14 will get it done at the expense of batteries. Generally speaking, Mejzlik are a bigger load but quieter than similar Falcons (both work well).

We generally run 21x13.5 Falcon V2 carbons which weigh less than 40 grams here at 4500' ASL on the Q80's and the Plettys.

I have used the falcon 21.5 x 13 2B with the lowest Mah at high wind conditions on a biside.

Also tryed the 19.5 x 13 3B was not bad for non high wind conditions, but the mahs was high
