I don't have this plane yet, but I have been looking at a lot of reviews online and most people are going to the GWS 7035 prop. Its a 7x3.5 that will give you a few more ounces of thrust over the stock prop. I have had a lot of Horizon Planes and the props are not too good. I always replace them.

Here are a few links to the props online:

I have experience with the GWS props and they are usually pretty well balanced form the factory, but still require some balancing before install. As for the other props from nitro planes, I don't know if they are GWS or not. I don't think they are. They could be good, or they could be so unbalanced that they are junk...I just don't know. If it were me, I would buy the ones off ebay (even though they are orange). Also, if you do not have a prop balancer, BUY ONE. Your plane and wallet will thank you in the long run. Out of balance props are bad news to motor bearing, motor mounts, and airframes. Just spend the few bucks and 5 minutes it takes to balance the prop and you will be very happy with the results.

Your LHS might have some props in stock too.

If you ever have any more questions in the future, do a Google search and I would bet good money that the first 10 results will be from RCGroups. There are a bunch of great guys on there that have the time to tinker and play with their planes until they are perfect (how they should come form the factory) and are generous enough to take the time to post all about what they did so others can do the same. Keep searching, reading, and learning. Good Luck!!!
