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!

63.3 Amps at 877 watts. Who knew HobbyKing would publish real numbers?! The real test is how long it will last....
I'm building this Reaper to be used as our club rabbit...a rabbit with teeth!!
