I guess you just refuse to read what I wrote. Nothing will be more accurate than testing your props in person-even if your calculator is more accurate. There are also lots of motors (thousands) available, so your calculator most like won't have individual motors listed.

Test different propellers with a thrust stand and a watt meter. Use the one with the highest thrust and lowest power ratio. If you are calculating pitch speed too, then just pick the highest thrust-power with your pitch speed.
