I recommend a 2.5 to 1 reduction on the transmission, and use a 16x15 or 16x16 RH fixed prop. If you choose a 2 to 1 reduction, then a 16x13 prop is the one to use.
The J Prop and the Max Prop are longer in the hub and blades when feathered, so the front of the hub has to be right up against the end of the bronze shaft log so the back end will not interfer with the cutout in the rudder.
