I found myself with some unexpected free time tonight so I experimented with the 3536 1800kv on 4S

All tests were static and with the stock motor using an Align 75A ESC set to mid timing; measurements were done with a WattsUp meter....

My first test was with a EMP Neodym 7X6 prop from Value Hobby – its a thick, tuff prop that can take a lot of abuse- it's my favorite for the Assassin on the Emax 2812 . The results were:
69 Amps at 927 watts

The motor is “only” rated for 65 Amps so I decided to try a slimmer prop – a 7X6 prop from HobbyKing – the results were...........

63.3 Amps at 877 watts

WOW – I was not expecting that!! Needless to say I'm unpressed with HobbyKing's advertised specs and will be cutting my Reaper for the 4S pack.

I'll post a flight report if anyone else is interested in this setup.


PS I included a photo of the graphics for this plane....Bugs Bunny is gonna have some speed!
