1114/4Y 3.7 box what cell count and prop??

I have an aveox 114/y4 witha 3.7 to 1 gearbox I would like to use with a Falcon hotliner see NSP website. I am think that perhap 10 cells (1250's) and a 12X10 prop may work out ok but I really want to use all of the available power that this motor can give! Aveox says 40 amps max but I am only looking to run the motor a few seconds or so. What prop would work the best for a fast climb..run time be dammed! I have a 160c Controller so NO problem there...give me your suggestions!!!!!!

Electricalc shows the 12x10 at 30A and 45oz thrust for 2.4 minutes. The 14x9.5 shows 40A and 59oz thrust for 1.8 minutes. Maybe that prop?

If you have the little 3.7 :1 planetary gear(under the Robbe label), they are not very good. Make sure you loctite the screws and check it every flight . The nylon planets in it are not very strong.

Nope I have the real planeta 3.7 to 1 just like the f10lmr and others so there should be no problems with power output of the 1114/4y
In this, there is not enough motor!
