Really? I thought that it was the motor prop combination that decided how many amps it was going to draw at wot. Say you have a setup that runs at around 35A so you put a 40A ESC on it are you saying that if you changed that ESC to an 80A one you would get more power but risk burning your motor out? Gona have to test that principle
I'd have though you would still be running at 35A but your ESC wouldn't be working as hard.
