Prop wash and prop diameter and battery pack

What are your thoughts with bigger prop on 4s v.s. smaller prop on 6s.

Which one is better for 3D?

I'm assembling a HK Sbach 342 1323mm.

Larger prop will give you more prop wash over the control surfaces, giving you more control authority post-stall as well as more torque for quicker response. Smaller prop will be better for speed. I'd generally recommend the larger prop if you're going for 3D performance.
