Also on page 3:

With regards to those Motor Calc Estimates you posted and the above setups....I really don't understand the reasoning for going to a larger Diameter Propeller knowing full well that you are jumping into a higher Kv Brushless Outrunner (480) and thereby your resulting poor lack luster efficiency (a Brushed 480 "can" motor be more efficiency in gearbox!!!)

I am sure it's perhaps within the manual? I don't know but, certainly the setup with the 450 is much more efficiency as it has more Torque (Kt) than the 480.
