Prop Selection

A few other things to consider:
You might have to change prop bolts, to compensate for different thickness of hubs,
And, the total weight will be different, so check your C.G. too.

Looks like, most of the guys that fly the TAS, typically use 2 blade props.

I prefer a 3 blade for precision flying for a few reasons.
1: Slightly heavier gives a little bit of a flywheel effect.
2: Usually quieter, not so easy to rip.
3: In my experience, the plane flys faster (appears smoother).
For 3d, definitely a 2 blade. It spools up quicker, punches out better, and makes a lot of noise!!
