I put the watt meter on my plane with a 13x6.5 apc two blade. It only drew 29.65 amps. I flew between this prop and the 12x8 apc two blade and really like the 13 overall. The watt meter does show I could go bigger on the prop. 14" maybe. Flew one 4s battery with a 11x10 apc and the battery was only slightly warm. No GPS on board but it must have been at least 67mph.

I was going to use the Zippy Compact batteries.. about 160g.
shouldn`t need any weight in front, right?
I tested and at 60mm balance, another 160g is required?
sound strange?

7 Minutes should be a comfy flight time, 6 if you are always up in the 3/4 to full throttle range. I fly low & slow to low & fast, loops, rolls etc etc & average from 6-7 minutes flights.
I am using Zippy Compact 2200`s which are 160g.
when balancing CG at 60mm, it seems I need another 160g..
this sound right?

sounds like you do need some more weight up front. I fly with Zippy 2800mah 4S 30C, which are 300g. no other weights added and flies fine.

Get your ESC further forward Kevin. Sounds like it is back a bit.
