What are peoples recomendations for motor KV / prop sizes on a 3 cell setup please?

Cheers guys
No one has answered so I'll mention my motor but some may say it is a bit big.

As I mentioned recently, I ended up buying this motor and a 4S LiPo:

Probably could have gotten a bit smaller motor and a bigger LiPo but I got the motor to make sure I have enough power on take off.

The motor works on a 3S or 4S. I'll try the 4S for the take off power and I understand that in some cases the 4S on a smaller prop can do a way less amps at the same flying speed.

Recommended is: 2212-2215, kv1400-kv1700, thrust 700-1300g

I have had my gear for a long time so using a FY21 AP and a AP117 OSD.

We are coming over to UK in May and also doing Europe. Guess it is a good place for a holiday.
