Default Propeller size for OS 61 FX

I have a H9 Alpha 60 trainer that came with a 13" 3 blade prop (don't know the pitch). The prop will not work with my OS 61 FX. The hub is too thick and the prop nut will not fully engage on the shaft.

Can I use a 13-6 or 13-5 two blade prop on this setup. The flying weight of the plane is 7-8 lbs. What is a good brand of prop to buy. I also need a 2 1/2" spinner. What would be a good matching spinner to go along with the suggested prop?

AS far as prop company goes APC's are awsome as they dont flex like the MA's do but the downside is an apc doesnt liket o hit the runway if it does you shoudl count on changing the prop
