I have a NEU 1112-1Y with the 6.67 gearbox. TP 1800-4S-65C packs, CC125. The prop is a thin 16 x 17.

It seemed very light on the power. After about 2/3 throttle the motor won't go any faster. It is pulling about 60-ish amps and 800 watts.

Trying to decided if we have too much prop for the motor....or not enough motor for the prop. I need to stick with the NEU gearbox as my motor mount is custom for it and not coming out anytime soon.

Thoughts?

What is the right amount of watts to get above average performance (I don't expect a insane plane...just really fast).
Check to see if you're getting 100% throttle and that your pack is fully charged. If you want more go 5s.
