Large 2P or 3P batteries needs to be used (10000-15000mAh), but that's just what the large 3D/acrobatic plane guys are doing and have been doing for some years. If it works for them it should do so in a EDF as well.
In the real world, it doesn't work that way! You must use the Kv that matches the load at the peak effiiency.
