I meant to say:

You could get more thrust and less speed by using (a prop with less pitch) and/or (a lower voltage battery with perhaps a slightly higher diameter prop to bring the current back up).

Also, using more turns of thinner wire will take less power for the same battery. You'd then need an even bigger prop for the same power. I'd just go for a larger diameter, lower pitch prop. Keep increasing the prop diameter until the current is too high then go back a size.
