The Rimfire .46 Kv is way too high to run 6S on anything bigger than about a 9" prop.

In the Rimfire series and assuming 6S, you'd be much better off with the Rimfire .80, Kv = 500 which is spot on for 13 and 14" props on 6S. Don't be misled by the .80 label - it's only 1oz heavier than the ".46", which will actually be a good thing as it will run cooler and likley balance better anyway in a model originally designed for a heavier glow engine

I can't compare with the Rimfire as I don't own one, but the OS 5020-490 is an outstanding motor for 6S and props that size. Handles around 1000W without breaking a sweat and runs extra smooth.

Good luck! BTW, depending on how you want to fly it, a 13 x 10 is probably worth trying too.
