Should be a rocket though Les is as you said the motor you've got weighs less than the original you should be fine? You can always run the 360 rhino .
Les the Electrosport factory folding prop would come close to suit I reckon, it would still need drilling out to 3.1mm ,the spinner is about 25mm and there's plenty of meat/plastic so drilling wouldn't be a problem , the blades would be a little longer than the stock but could be shaped down to size, if you want to get it flying this week , Hallam or Addies may have them in stock, about 3 bucks from memory .
Got some parts ordered including the props fuse and wing so I might build an all out pylon version on 3s
Will be interested in seeing yours fly .

Lyndon it's a lotta fun ,worth every penny .
