Vario prop first comes to mind. They have 14 and 15" in 2,3,4, and 5 blades in 2-3 different blade types. And they are variable pitch so you can set your watts input very easily.
Zinger will make 4 blader wooden prop systems as well on a custom base., fixed pitch. They have a fairly large hub centre if mounting a spinner, it may or may not cause issues. Check out their site. Doug B

How does the electric motor do with the prop? It seems that the nitro props would be too narrow width, and too heavy (?)

It handles the prop just fine, that's the nice thing about electric motors they can handle the 4 blade props.

Well, if your trust in people is based on their name, so be it.

If I went by names I wouldn't put any faith in the majority of the people on this board. lol
Maybe I should change my user name to Albert Einstein
