More Suppo motor tests

I have just had time to try one of the new motors Dave sent me... the A2217K-8T (1100Kv).

The recommended amp draw is 5-16A with a max. of 18A. Recommended props are 11x5? on 2s, and 10x5 on 3s.

I began with a 9x5 GWS HD and that took it just over the 16A continuous limit, a 10x5 APC E took it to 21.30A/227W (quite a bit over the 18A burst max.). As expected a 10x6 GWS HD matched the 10x5 APC E very closely. Finally I tried an 11x5.5 APC E (since I don't have.. or know of... an '11x5') on 2s voltage. At the highest watts-in (>220W) the motor got a bit warm (as high as 56C), but not dangerously so.

About 40oz @ 40+mph is a decent figure for a 70g motor like this. One could possibly push it a bit harder too.
