Can't decide which one to put on my P-40B Warhawk 50. Any suggestions or insight on the flight characteristics between the two types?

Obviously the 3-blade will look better and a bit better ground clearance; but performance-wise the 2 blade would typically be more efficient. So if what it does in the air is more important than how it looks up close, then go 2-blade.

Never, ever, ever, ever give up.

Or do what some guys do: install the 3-blade when transporting and sitting static at the field then just before flying replace it with the 2-blade.

Why not have the best of both worlds?

This hobby is WAY too expensive!!
