Regarding the use of the Kira 480 with more than 4S lipos. Yes, it's indeed limited due to current limit and the efficiency drops too much (and there is big risk to burn it). However, it would be still very good had they made a higher ratio reduction gear for it; Drive calc gives about 1,2 kW with 85% efficiency at about 70A with 6.7:1 gear assuming 6S lipo and 16x13 AeroCAM.
