Unknown. It was never intended to run 4S in that fan due to the high watts. If he is getting full watts on 4S then with the thrust tube it should be about 120mph! I would make sure the rotor does not spin on the adapter which means it will probably have to be glued on and balanced very well.

Amazing!!
Well in theory if 380 watts on 3S, then going to 4S would be about 700-750 watts at 50-55 amps. Typically I don't recommend any of the regular wicked motors to be run over 600 watts. The 6000KV has thicker windings so might be OK if not run WOT all the time. This is uncharted territory
