Turnigy D3530/14 1100KV

Battery: 2~4 Cell /7.4~14.8V
RPM: 1100kv
Max current: 22A
No load current: 1.6A
Max power: 315W
Internal resistance: 0.077 ohm
Weight: 73g (including connectors)
Diameter of shaft: 5mm
Dimensions: 35x30m
Prop size: 7.4V/12x6 14.8V/8x4
Max thrust: 1100g

I have 3s 2200mah batteries to use with it so maybe a ?????

I have a watt meter to test but I don't want to just go buy 10 props not knowing what I'll use so any guidance would be appreciated.
I'm in the same boat. Electronics may as well be alchemy or some other dark art to me, too. So this makes me wonder why more folks don't just get the power system recommended by Multiplex, which is already figured out and performs great--is it the cost? I got the recommended system, BTW, and I'm happy with it.
