Default Visionaire Pilots, Prop Question

Any of you Visionaire pilots use a prop other than the factory 12 x 4?

I dont have a Visionare but on other 3D models I've found a 'half-square' (12x6 in this case) works best. Much less than half square tends as a rule to be lacking in speed and quite inefficient for anything but hovering.

You would of course have to watch your amps if you went to a 12x6.

Nope I use that stock prop and really love it.... I know many change it for a bit more speed but this is not a go fast plane for me. That said I am still happy with the overall speed, but lets face it, that is one draggy airframe...by design.

Thanks guys I should have added that I am not looking for more speed. My issue is 12 x 4E is hard to find in my location and looking for alternatives. My local Hobby Shop has APC 12 x 4 in, but my spinner will not fit unless I modify it.
