On this motor on 3s I've tried 9050, 9070, 1047, 1050?, 1147, 1238. On this plane the last four. Since 1147 was in the 12A range IIRC I was afraid to go up in diameter and pitch. Figured if I increased diameter to get more air past the cowl I should lower the pitch. I guess I should have tried the 1170 and 1280 since I believe I have them in my box of props. I just assumed they would pull too many amps.

Hobby Lobby says this motor is good for 10A. Right now I'm pushing it to ~13A but it's not getting hot. Regardless of seller ratings, I assume I'm not pushing the motor to hard as long as it stays cool. Yes? No?
