I just read in another thread that half throttle gives you 1/3 maximum thrust, so the throttle to thrust ratio can't be linear unless full throttle is only 66% of max thrust.

Regarding eCalc's "optimal efficiency." I just realized that it is a value that has nothing to do with your selected prop - it doesn't change when you change props. It seems like its a guide to selecting a prop to acheive optimal efficiency, which for me, is always not enough for adequate flight. Does this sound right?
