Propeller & battery size questions

I am outfitting an Aeolian 1010 watt, 850 Kv motor. 6 - 24 v. on an estimated 6 lb all up weight Super Hots.

The manufacturer specs 13 x 10, 14 x 7 and 14 x 10 props.

Can I use a 13 x 8 or a 12 x 10 prop?

Also, IYO, can I run on 4 cells , or should I run on 5?

C4250 850kv ?

Usually the 3 prop sizes are related to the number of lipo cells. So the 13 x 10 is probably for 6s, the 14 x 7 for 5s, the 14 x 10 for 4s, (these are guesses).

Running a smaller prop on less cells is not a problem, just a bit of a waste. You probably won't get much rpm on 4s, but the current will be low and safe.
