Is it lousy performance or just lousy numbers when you compare the efficiency to other motor?

Would you consider the difference in those numbers to make this motor lousy? I think I could adjust the kV up (thereby, with fewer turns, increase the wire size too) and get the RPMs matched up better.

Did you return the GP props I sent to you for testing to me? That might explain why they were only tested one time. They are the ones with right angled tiplets and are marked "GP dia. x pitch S" in Imperial and metric. If you don't have them and I send them to you again, will you test them along with similar props?
