With that 3000kv motor, you'll want a 4.5x4.5 prop, which is tiny, and has a lot of speed but little thrust. It's a very specialized motor.

It should be used on small speedy planes, something like this, which actually recommends that exact motor: http://www.nanoplanes.net/bshark.html

If you want to fly more normal planes, get a more normal motor
