that prop sounds right, I'm running a 6x4 on small 1500-1700kv motors,
and a lot of the parkjet motors are 2Kv or better, so they are happy running a small diameter prop very fast.

My buddy is much better at 3D than me and he was getting it to hover by torque rolling... which looked ridiculous. haha. He did some high alpha and low passes. I got some good video while he was flying. I'll get it online late tonight or tomorrow.

I'm a little confused by the prop I'm running but I'm no expert in power systems. 7x5E on a little 1300 kv outrunner and 8 amp esc. It has more than 1:1. I see way smaller props on more powerful motors.
