The larger prop will give you great climb out's to altitude quickly. You would have just slightly greater than a 1:1 power to weight ratio with a 3m sailplane. I just like vertical performance.

If you go with the smaller motor, run about a 16x10. It will still give you over 90oz of thrust at around 35 amps according to the calculator. This would still be a very nice set up.

it depends if you want to save the 70 grams difference between the motor sets. I would personally rather have the thrust and go with the larger motor since you have the batteries that will handle the motor already.
