Does the various APC folding prop hubs affect prop length?

I just discovered APC folding props. Here's an other thread with pic. There are four different hub sizes to accommodate different spinner sizes--30mm, 40mm, 45mm, 50mm.

With nearly 3/4" between the largest and the smallest, with this affect the prop length?

3/4" of added length on a 5" prop is a huge difference and would increase amp draw.

Thanks,

rt

Yes, it will affect the prop length. Which one to choose I cant help you with im sorry, I used an mpjet hub with my graupner blades, and just picked one that would clear the nose of the glider.
