BUT, a motor rated for more watts means it can HANDLE more power... meaning you can prop up further without overheating the motor. Of course, thats going to pull more amps, so make sure your battery and ESC can handle it....
So basicaly, if your setup now pulls 15 amps, and you install the new motor with the same prop, its still going to pull about 15 amps. But that new motor can handle 23 amps, so you can prop up to get either more thrust or more speed. To get more thrust, increase the diameter, to get more speed increase the pitch. Either will increase amp draw.
Ok, thx, that's what i thought.
I need more thrust to put all my fpv in the air with the minimag.
I will put à bigger prop with the same pitch, and change the ESC for a bigger one.
