My batteries are pretty strong 40C so I think that is why I was getting such high amp draws.You are right about throttle management with this prop,I don't use much full throttle anyway,I just didn't like the way it felt.
The fact that the motor was also getting hot indicates,as you say,that it is not a very efficient setup,plus it will reduce flight times.All good though,I am happy with the motor and will experiment some more with other props and stuff.(another option would be lighter wood props....hmnn I got me some of them)
Motors are easily changed if needed,airframes not so much and I am very impressed with this one so far.
