So the total weight of your hypothetical craft is 8lb. Your power system will need to produce at least 8lb. of thrust to keep in the air (hovering). Assuming a quad configuration, each motor/prop needs to produce 2lb. thrust minimum. What is the power (iow, current draw based on battery voltage) the motor/prop combo needs to produce this amount of thrust? Unless you have some idea what this number is, you are flying blind.
