then again, i am using a 9x5 prop on a 680 watt motor that i originally put in my funcub... no idea of the thrust, but draws 55 amps at 12 volts... and it still won't climb vertical (not exactly a light plane =P )
I went ahead and ordered 3 different motors to try. Exceed Rocket 2215.
1500kv, 1700kv and a 1950kv. I'll try the 1950kv 1st. They have test numbers posted with a 6X4 prop....showing 265 watts @ 22 amps.
