I have always used the same prop that came with the motor.  How do you know when you have the right prop?  What should I be looking for to determine if I have the right prop?

Being basically lazy, and lousy at typing
I keep this link for anyone who asks this question... ;)

and this one...

and when you finish reading them,
you'll find they all say basically the same thing.

Install a tach, run with your normal load at full throttle,
buy the prop that lets you run in the top end of the power band.

Thank you Brett!!!  This looks like very good information to help get educated on the how props actually work.  I started reading Propellers 101 and have learned several things I was not aware of.

Thank you for being such an excellent resource for this website.
