Default Kyosho Valencia out of the closet

Hi
I'm a new member. I just pulled my old
Kyosho Valencia out of the closet.
I'd been thinking of getting it running again.
I've been thinking of a brushless motor for it but
first things first.
I'd just bought a new gear box for it ( mine was
a little beat up ).
I was wondering where one might find a replacement
propellor for it? It looks kind of agressive. My measurements
show it is a 9X9 or 9X10.
I'd never been successful at a ground launch with it ( maybe
lack of experience at the time ). I'd been slop gliding for
a couple years but that was always a hand launch. That
was the only way that I'd flown it.
It is considered to be a motor glider so I thought soemone here
might have some experience with these.

I flew it this last weekend. I didn't get to use the motor, just slope
( park rules ).
I was rusty and it was a little nose heavy, making it sluggish.
There were a couple of fellows flying a couple of foam wings.
Not much lift but I gave me a chance to fly a little.
Next to find someplace to launch and use the motor as well.
I'm not yet confident enough to trow it on flat ground.
