Aveox with gearbox has excessive amp draw?

I have an aveox 27/13/3.

I got it originally for my zagi, but since then discovered 3D foamies.

I got a Promaxx 5.2:1 planetary gearbox for it to get the proper prop for doing these types of flights.

My problem is that the motor is now drawing 15A when it used to draw 11A without the gearbox.

What this normal?

Without the gearbox it was turning a 6X4 prop. and with the earbox its turning a 12X6 slowfly.

The reason Im concerned is that I am going to use a Lipo that is rated at 8C and can only take 12A draws.

any ideas or suggestions?

Use a smaller prop.
