I'm using the stock motor on 4S. With the scale prop it pulled 65 amps and the only thing I didn't like was how it felt when I reduced throttle. It felt like it was going to stop due to drag of the 4-bladed prop.

I decided to try an APC-E 18x12 but only had an 18x10 so I went with that. Even though the current dropped to 48 amps, the plane felt so much better. When I finally got the 18x12 prop I felt like it was the sweet spot. About 52 amps according to the wattmeter.
