Foamster,
When I flew my Mega 4T with 3.3:1, I used an APC 10x7SF, drawing 15amps at WOT. I would feel comfortable with that size of prop or an APC prop within that 10x7 or 11x4.7 range.

Thanks Kevin,

That gives me a ball park figure to work to, like with most electric stuff, you need to experiment a bit to find your preferred setup.
