You could go the HET 6404 and the Wicked 4000 Plus motor that is ~450 watts on 3S but it is heavier as well as that is really meant as a higher powered 4S setup, but you would be running on 3S. By the way, that 326 watts your are measuring on the stock system is that the reading after about 15 seconds run time so it settles a little? I thought they were closer to 280 watts or so one settled down.
Did the test again. Seems to settle down to about 310-315w
What fan unit do you recommend?
