that motor on the 4S 45-90C 2200 nanotechs pulled 1500 watts at about 95 amps with the 7X6E... a bit hot for my liking so I went to a 7X5 sport prop and it pulled about 1200 watts at about 75 amps all static and it will unload in the air quite a bit with the 7X5
so holy crap its going to be fast pulling twice the watts as it did initially... I may kick the timing back to 15* from 30* as well this will slow the motor a little and it will pull less amps
take care
I dident put on the backplate or cone so the motor will get allot of cooling but the plane will be a little more draggy Im not too worried about the high watts on this motor I think it will handle it... I used to double watts on ARC motors and never burned one up but I need to do more work on cooling for the ESC
Congrats you are almost up in my class u will love it. On my 6s setup I don't have spinner or backplate. The motor and esc gets plenty of cooling. I am at 2260watts 107 amp on ground my motor is rated for 1300w but still going strong. U can launch the plane almost straight up at 1/4 to half throttle.
