Turnigy Talon Tricopter

I recently acquired a Talon tri-copter. It came with multi-star 800 kv motors and is using 11x4.7 SF props on 3s. I'd like to step it up to 4s and was wondering what prop size I should run??? 9 or 8 inch? Also, on Hobbyking's website, it states these motors are rated for only 2 or 3 s. I can't imagine why they couldn't handle 4s on a smaller prop, but if someone knows why could you please warn me or explain why I shouldn't use these motors on 4s?

More information is needed to answer your question. What escs are being used? What flight controller? pictures would be great.

I've been running Sunnysky 2212 1400kv on 4s and 30a esc's for years for aerobatics. As long as your esc's,motors, and the rest of your system can handle 4s, start with some cheap 8 in props then prop up brother as long as you can measure amp draw. that's the fun and risk of learning these addictive little buggers.
