I use a 4.8v NiMH pack with no esc, and the motor only serves as nose weight
Slopie all the way
Although I occasionally whip out a 2200 3S for those flat field days and just use the stock esc/prop/motor
No heat issues so far. But I have heard the stock esc is marginal for the setup 40+ esc would be enough

I previously bench tested a 4s on a 3542-1400kv, but decided to stay 3s Thunder Power 2200 45c, per not wanting to add MORE weight to tail.
Also, 4s interfered with wing saddle and Rx placement. Never flew 4s.
Possibly an 4s 1500-1800mah would have fit, but I only had 2200's.
I replaced stock motor in 2011, with a Turnigy D3542/4 1450kv & 9x7 Aeronaut (HK prop suggests 10x7 on 4s is ridiculous). I ended up using a Jeti Pro 70 that I had, it fit better being longer but thinner.
If I recall correctly, 3s TP 2200 45c = WOT 540-600w range( using 9x6, 9x7,)..... 47+amps & 95+mph per pitot tube with 9x7 in a shallow dive. Good little motor, just a little heavy.
Though a handful to launch, I had a several good flights with it before "dumb thumbs" crash.
If I wanted to upgrade my 2nd Blaze, would buy comparable to stock motor or IMHO possibly even up to 1200kv range for a little more zip with a maximum of 35mm.
Having been to the dark side, my thumbs prefer stock motor & 10x7, 40amp just fine! Hauls my 4.5oz camera without a problem.
have a good one
