The early version p-47 had the purple FMS 4250-Kv500 motor and then FMS started installing the newer gold paep 4250-kv 540 motors. Both motors do well with the stock 4 blade prop on the P-47 as I have tried both sizes, but I like the 540 a little better along with running a 80amp esc with a 10amp CC ubec.

Maybe it's time to throw in the towel.

So I upgraded the motor in my Carbon Z to a Power 60 and moved the E-Flite BL-50 (the stock Carbon Z motor) into the P-47 to turn the 14x8 4 blade prop. The BL-50 had been successfully flown in the Carbon Z on 6S.

The plane took off great and flew around for a few minutes fine. I did not run the plane full throttle the whole time. I noticed it was not has peppy as it was with the same prop and the FMS motor. But after a few minutes, the motor started to die and smoke could be seen coming from the plane.

Upon landing and inspection the motor was fried. Locked and would not budge. Everything else was fine.

So it may not work out running the FMS P-47 on 6S with a 4 blade prop.
