Those numpers should be fine with proper cooling so I'm thinking about adding an air exhaust vent to the cowl.

I am surrounded by salt water so my goal is to make my Ultra salt water tollerant. That would mean some stainless hardware so that's next on my list!

keep posting videos, that keeeps me motivated!
Don't use the three blade 8x6 on 4s -- its way too much load for the motor and wires. You need to go down to an 8x4 APC two blade or maybe an 8x6. I tested extensively on the XL and set 30A as my working limit. (That's in the air, corresponds to about 33 static)

EDIT: Just saw Scott's comment and your reply. I would not even try "bursts" on the three blader.

EDIT2 Specs on that motor:
Maximum 30A continuous, 33A burst. I would take that seriously.
