Same setup on mine 123MPH straight and level. You dont want to go smaller. Your next step should be a bigger esc 125ish and a 12x10 prop. you should get 130's like me..... just short bursts as you WILL cook that motor. Also did you notice that it does NOT slow down on landing with these small props!?!?!?

i have an extra rimfire 46. on hand. and since this motor doesnt really seem to heat up with this many watts/amp, my calculations show that she may handle 7s on a smaller prop...i will bench test and get some data
