Full throttle gives 22000 rpm at 22 Amp. Since the max Amp of this motor is 18 Amp, I reduced the throttle in my transmitter so the motor draws 19 Amp static at 21000 rpm.
I was first using a Hacker Master 18-3P (with this setup I have flown quite some time in my micro-jet, without any problems, flight time 8-10 min full throttle) but it stopped the motor after about a 4 min flight because the controller got too hot. I already drillled some holes in the fuselage but I doubt that this helps. So I changed it with the 30-3P and now I can fly it without shutting down the motor. BUT the controller is getting very (too) hot and I have to think off something to improve the cooling.

My setup: Mega 16/7/6
Battery 3s ThunderPower 2100 Gen II
Hacker Master 30-3P
Cam speed prop 4,7x4,7TP2100, which would give me some nice flighttime.

I was really surprised how easy she starts and flies like she is on rails. Landings are easy too, you just need a long way to bleed of the speed.
The speed is very high offcourse, as expected. I only think the advised rates on the ailerons are way to small.
