Hey restlesswind, here's the video you asked for: Flyjet X83 w/ 2836-2350 @ 1500+ watts
Efficient or not, really doesn't matter to me. I LOVE this thing and still can't believe how nice it runs at this power level. I ran it the other day (few days after that video was shot), it was about 5-10C outside, and motor was still coming down relatively cool. Just slightly warm. And even managed to pull off a 140mph pass. This was with almost no wind (maybe 5-10kph wind gusts on occasion).

Look at the above video for backup (I'm sure you were referring to my setup, right?).
