Now I'll be getting back to my Kool-Aid, mm... tasty.

This is the kind of recommendation that is confusing to me. 3DHS says the Hacker motor (378Kv) on 6s is recommended but that this Scorpion motor (440Kv) on 8s is appropriate to use as well. They also also specify either a 17x10 or 18x8 prop. However, Scorpion prop data shows that this motor pulls 87A with a 17x10 at 21V, which would be running it at 6s. With 8s, I can only imagine what the amp would be. If you go by these #s, I'd expect 8s would fry that sucker! Is 8s just a typo?
