Have also been there done that.
See post http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showt...246407&page=77 item 1143

Peak O/P of 1.6KW. 755 Watts off the front blade & 852 off the back, flying with same pitch. Ended up with more on the front.
Is that data static (you qoute "take-off") or at flight speeds? not clear and it makes a BIG difference.
