The numbers Pizzano gave are the one I put into eCalc, plus 313 sq" for the wing area. The advice was basically "Don't fly with the stock 9.5X7.5 prop!" Makes one wonder about accuracy of eCalc.

But that makes it seem that the 9.5X7.5 is marginal at best. That's why I wonder what prop owners are really using. Thanks pizzano, that is what I was looking for.
