Dunno. I have run one (a typical 2839, 2750kv) on 5s in a different plane, with a 4--blade fan; it ran pretty well for 4 or 5 flights, until one good WOT run of 8 or 9 seconds and that was all she wrote. I wasn't kind to it on the other flights either, so maybe with a bit of mercy it will go the distance.
If not, there are alternatives
