Hi,
It depends how bad your batteries have become in a year. My one or two years old Polyquest 30C are so bad compared to new 35C G3 that I need 6s vs. 5s to make same power. I did a bentch test while ago. With old 30C batts I was at 800W and with the new 35C batts the same setup gave 1800W. That might be the most extreme difference ever but you can't really know until you test.
Even if the test show significant difference you can still preheat the old pack and choose larger prop and be in the same ball park.
