Playing with the Mini Speedwing

So the question is, what's the largest prop you can put on a 24" wing without having major torque roll problems?

I have a Mini Speedwing that I used a Feigao 1208436L on, and quite honestly I found it very underpowered. Doesn't vertical, doesn't go super fast, and I find myself at 100% throttle almost the entire time.

I have an extra 1700 KV 2712-17 outrunner from another plane lying around, and am going to throw it on there... Only thing is the RPMs are obviously much less, and I'll need to get the biggest prop on there as I can. -Just worried about torque roll. I have a 6X4 prop on it right now, but I think I'll get one a bit smaller before trying to fly it. Will update.
