Earl, I have swapped between props on the quad and the octo (both 4S 3548 size 800Wish per motor) and on both occasions the gain did vary but not by a lot and that was going between 14x4.7 and 12x4.5 so at a guess going same size to a bit more or less pitch may not have a huge effect. Stability didn't change a great deal other than on 14's both of mine have to be loaded up fairly heavy or they get real "floaty" in the breeze. I was thinking of useing the 12's with no load just for back yard practice as they are cheap compared to the APC 14SF's.

From my mucking around I think just changing pitch won't have a great effect on stability. Will be interested to hear how it goes for you if you try it.
