Yes correct, swinging that 3-Blade helps if you have a lower Kv of 850 as it has more torque Kt. I am sure if you change out the propeller to a 2-Blade with say a 10 inch with 7-pitch, it will perform a little more lively on 3-Cells. (Assuming 25C Discharge, minimum).

Should you still want to keep the Stock Motor and use 4-Cells, I would use nothing over 9-inch diameter and a 7 pitch and watch it zoom!
