3s 48A 480W 14x7 propeller
5s 42A and nearly 800w
6s(on crappy batts with BIG voltage sag) around 36-38A and i would say around or even over 900w

on 6s i guess my batteries gave voltage drop over lvc so my esc was cutting out around 70-80% throttle, but if on 5s 100% throttle was nearly 800w, than 6s 70%throttle was the same 770-800w
Watt meters are your friend but voltage sag is not . Its nice to be able to see your changes on the meter make improvements. Watts are no good if there is no efficiency.
