I just put a prop calc program on www.flynwolverines.com on the "Links" page, row 6 column A.
It will help with everything electric, but it takes some study to deal with all the parameters, they are extensive!

The program is rich with components in each drop-down selection. You might find your motor brand and model in there!

I just skimmed through the Bob Angel article at https://www.modelaviationdigital.com...&folio=56#pg59

Yes, I understand the new rules will include:
1. 400 foot limit, unless FAA gives a special letter of agreement for your area.
2. Registration of every plane at $5 per year.
3. Electronic identification of where the model is during flight, and where the pilot is.
4. Limitation of flying sites, never to expand from the original allocation, but can shrink.

But everybody says "That will never happen" so I just stopped warning people.
The FAA got over 50,000 letters in response to their call for comments to the modelling industry, but I have read that they virtually ignored them.
