Dr Drela´s calculations seems very convincing to me. It is just that little detail of increasing the angle of attack of the prop blade at the same time as the diameter is increased. As far as I can see, that will make the inner part of the blade operate at an excessive pitch. Why not keep the angle constant and just change the diameter?
