At 24g that motor is probably okay for 72W max...thus 6A-7A max.

7x6 or 8x6 will be too much on 3s.

Aprox Specs:
3 Cell, 5x5 prop, 73.5W- 7 oz thrust
3 Cell, 6x3 Direct Drive , 6A, 63 Watts- 12 oz thrust
3 Cell,7x3.5 Direct Drive, 3s, 7A, 75 Watts- 14 oz thrust

Heads up RC has some data for that motor.


Dr Kiwi has lots of data posted, too. I've entered his screen name into the advanced search options more times than I can count.

8x4 GWS HD is the safest.. if you aren't going to be using WOT a lot, a 9x5 GWS HD is a possibility.
