It's only rated at 320W steady, 370W max. It pulled way more with no complaints. I measured it at a 16:1 motor thrust to weight (way overpropped pulling 475W @ 38 ounces of thrust).

Underpropped, with a 10x6 and a 2200 mAh 35C, you can use the stock ESC @ 28.5A and 290W max and still put 36 oz of thrust in front of a lighter, better balanced T-28. Static T:W is around 1.2 to 1. Flight time is 10-11 mins doing half full up aerobatics and half T&Gs.

Speedwise, that little .10 tore my T-28's left elevator off in level flight. You need to tape all the hinges and beef up the elevator where it passes through the rudder.

So I wouldn't says its overated, not at $24 total upgrade cost.
