I measured the current and power consumption with the same configuration as before:
-motor Hextronic 5g 2000kv
-ESC: HobbyKing 6A ESC: unknown settings
-battery: Nanotech 180mAh, 2s, 25-40C
-wattmeter: Turnigy 130A from HobbyKing

The measurements were peak power only, lasting only a few seconds.
The battery was freshly charged at the beginning but not recharged between measurements.

-GWS EP-5030: 1.72Ap, 13.3Wp, 7.72Vm
-GWS EP-4540: 1.82Ap, 14.0Wp, 7.67Vm
-GWS EP-4025: 1.35Ap, 10.5Wp, 7.79Vm

No load measurements were done with the motor mount on but without the plastic ring that holds the prop. in place:
Same config as above:
-0.34Ap, 2.7Wp, 8.12Vm, 8.20V at start, 8.18V at the end

The notation used are the same as reported by the wattmeter:
Ap = peak current in amps.
Wp = peak power in watts
Vm = the min. voltage in volts, not necessarily taken at the same time as Ap and Wp
