The formal GWS name is Hyper Drive, but GWS and many of the retailers simply refer to them as "direct drive," even though the larger HD props work great on gearboxes.

Ah thats what was confusing me, they were all calling them direct drive instead of hyper drive. Oh one more question, If I was going to be flying with a SF 10x7 or SF 10x4.7, what hyper drive prop? If I go with the HD 11x7 will the amp draw raise or stay the same? If I go with the HD 10x6, I assume the amp draw will lower, but will I loose a lot of power?

Thanks,
Ryan

Go one size higher for the Hyperdrive, and get similar amp draw.

Depending on the exact size, a general rule of thumb is that if you go up one size, you will get slightly more thrust and slightly lower current draw. But it varies. For instance, there is only one 11-inch Hyper Drive prop (11x7), so, obviously, you will get different results if switching up from a 10x4.7 or 10x8 Reduction Series.
