Thanks for your thoughts, 7/12 is a 42% efficiency loss, right on the high-side of what I've heard. Not really the scale I'm looking at though.

Also, you didn't vary prop pitch, which is what this thread is about: determining how much more prop pitch is best for efficiency. It's a foregone conclusion that increased pitch on the lower motor is necessary.

I will try some tests with an amp meter and see if I can learn a bit more about how the two ESCs and motors work in combination. I've considered building a thrust meter as others have done, but that gets a bit more complicated/time consuming than I really wanted.
