On the 1950kv ... I'd be inclined to use a 7x5 prop ... to avoid excessive amps and to utilise the kv better. High pitch and high kv does not necessarily mean high speed ... the motor needs to run a little freer ...

Oh nearly forgot : Don't be surprised when main U/C legs break away with mount plate on landing ! Just epoxy it all back in better ! But don't add any strengthening ... better to have it break out without ripping bottom out ...

Great minds think a like I see! I was thinking about a 7X4 or 7X5 or maybe even an 8X4. If I got to 4s I would use the 6X4. I can tell when a motor is happy and this one even with a low battery was very happy with the prop that is on it now. It wasn't struggling at all... the pack I had was at 3.8v per cell..
