See, I was thinking that 6s wasn't going to be enough power for a 12 lb. warbird on a 15" prop. I know the plane doesn't need 200 watts/lb. as it's not a 3D airplane, but due to the prop limitation I figured it would have to be at least 8s.

Buzz, thanks for the links!

Brandon, we'd just have to try it. It's easy enough to buy a few props, bolt that motor to a test stand, and see what we get as far as amps goes.
