It might not be a problem at flight speeds
Using the 16X10 3 bladed prop, it says it will pull 59 amps, burst is 65 amps.
Looks like a test stand and a pile of props for a weekend test is in your future.
I think that's exactly what we're going to have to do. The other big problem is figuring how the heck to get batteries into that thing but we're not worried about that until we know we've got a good motor/prop combo. He swapped out air retracts (finicky and problematic) with some nice electric retracts so that should help things out a bit since there's no longer a big air tank.
