Yes defiantly go with the 1485 motor. Just because I had it, I am running a 160HV castle. Maybe that's a little over kill but better to be safe than using a fire extinguisher! I would at least go with a 120.

I'm no expert but why push your esc to the max, it just doesn't make sense to me.

I flew yesterday for about 3 minutes, mixed throttle and had 63% left in the batteries. I made 4 high speed passes with big loops after the pass. I think if a pilot just flew wide open he/she would have 4 minutes minimum. I think it's not realistic to fly it wide open for a couple reasons. It's nice to stretch the batteries and this thing is deceiving with it's speed. It's so quiet it just doesn't sound like it's going fast but in reality it's moving pretty quick and you need to get off the throttle to make the turns.
