Well, that's the general idea. I'm aimed for the 8S, so I would have the ability to try lower power levels and if necessery prop up a bit with 16L. Honestly all that seems very complicated to me, the loss of power or increase can be huge and not so proportional comparing to smaller airframes, the numbers are scary. Anyways, if I would have to drop 18x10 idea I would end spinning 20" prop which is in theory sounds better than the 18". All I hope is to get solid 7.30-8.00mins of flight time, so have to keep the amps lower.

Finally got my 20x10 Xoar props today. With my A50-16L on 8s I'm getting 2100 watts. Much better than the 1450 watts that I was getting with the Xoar 18x10. I think that I may go up to a 20x12 just to get a little more pitch speed. Hopefully I'll get to try out the 20x10 tomorrow and see how it feels in the air first. Hopefully these numbers can help somebody out, as I had trouble finding real world numbers for the 16L.

Remember that the left thumb determines flight times, not max watts or amps.

LOL! I wouldn't argue with that in any way.

Thanks for you numbers it mostly cleared the things up. Any chance you got amperage, voltage and rpm?

For the guys running 8s. What is the mAh sweet spot for the 70"?

I've seen some with 3900mah and some with 8s-4200mah. What would be ideal as far as flight times and weight issues?

I'm running 3600's and 3700's. I set my timer for 5 minutes and land at about 6 minutes. I'm usually putting in right around 3000 mah's back in the packs. I do mixed 3D with about half the flight being low and slow stuff to save on the mah's.

Thanks! Also if you would have a chance to spin 19x10, please do, it would be interesting.

I run 4000 ma 20c packs and I set my timer for 7:30 and put back around 28-2900 ma.
I could drop down to 3300 and set the timer for 6 min and have plenty left for a go around or 2 if needed.

I'm in Port Jeff Station nearly every other weekend. Are there places around there I could fly a 57" SC?

Akschu,

Custom wind does not cost anymore than the two Kv we have listed as all the 4325 are built and wound here. Just thought I would let you know and would only delay shipping by maybe one day.
