You can use a normal prop. But have an eye on the root of the prop and the adapter shaft. Sometimes the threaded part of the shaft doesnt fit to the prop hole (adapter ring) well which can lead to vibrations.

Motor direction is usually always counter clock wise at push or pull configuration viewed from the front of the plane to the back. This is important for the angle of the motor which should compensate the motor torque.

Clockwise props are needed for example at planes like the skymule with two motors. One clockwise and one counter clockwise. So they compensate the torque bye themselves.

It depends on where the adapter rings are. At the back or the front of the prop. Some APC props have adapter rings for both sides.

The pnf version is perfect for normal flying and long flight times. Over 25 min (Maybe more. Cant remember exactly because have changed to the 2730) with mixed throttle and 1600mAh 2s. I have installed an orange gyro but in my opinion it hasnt much effect. Maybe this changes if you are using the Open flight stab firmware.

Keep the plane as light as possible.

If the fpv gear adds too much weight and you need more thrust you can try this motor on 2s instead of the stock one:

Or one of the 2730 motors with lower kv and a bigger prop. Biggest prop related to the fins is a 6 inch, maybe a 7 inch with cutted tips. Otherwise you will hurt the fins with the tips of the prop.

Maybe the HK Mini Breeze is a better plane for a first plane.

Flew for 7 minutes on a pack and put around 1000mAh back so just about 80%

HK 24g 3000Kv motor
1300mAh 3S battery
40A ESC (The meter says 260W / 23A)
TGS 4.75*4.75 prop

400g AUW

I really like my Wingwing
What is your speed?

Have you ever tried a GWS 4040 with this set up?
