Also no idea if it will be powerful enough on 1s, but I suspect not.

May be worth a try I guess.... If it doesn't work, you can use a 2s ESC, voltage regulator and 2s LiPo to get it going, but that will weigh a ton.
I'm so far out of my league that I hesitate to say this, but this is just the tail motor, not the main BL, so I think thats why 1S is working. The reports so far have been based on fixed wing aircraft, but if the can fits in the frame AND it can run on 1S, it would be an interesting mod.

Again, I rely on the intelligent people of this thread to figure this stuff out, so anything I write is utter speculation and optimistic foolery.
