6.5X6.0 not only starts with higher AMPs, it also unloads fewer % AMPs at max speed.

So with that in mind:

If you have 6.5X5.5 Pylon prop take the time to run it before 6.5X6.0

Spend more time gliding inbetween your full throttle runs so the motor has a chance to cool down more (after all it will be generating more heat due to larger prop than 6.5X5.0)

For first flights with higher load props, make fewer full throttle passes in order to gauge motor temp.

Incremental prop size increase, Fewer passes, More time gliding.....gradually change these things with subsequent flights.

Good luck,
