So, I have proof that does not require a calculator or slide rule. Conclusion: DON'T do it. In my experience the manufactures already stretch the specs of their motors (Grayson and MicroDan are two exceptions that come to mind).
P.S. Of course, I have to say it... My slide rule can beat up your slide rule.
Thanks for or your help and advice guys but to be honest its getting way to complicated...Slide rules etc...I have only been flying for about a year
Will stick with the motor I have got, build a new mount out of Ply so I can attach a bigger prop. and all should be good.
One thing I did notice that after a few months my original prop mount came loose.
I hot glued her in and I swear she is a different bird!...smooth
