Mini Twin

Using the stock EDP-50 motors and 3x3 props draws about ~2 amps or a little more, static, and about 17K rpm per motor.

I am sure it unloads quite a bit in flight. Using Qualcom Li-on batteries, two packs (one per motor) gives 20 min WOT flights.

Worst case, the motors overload the ESC and shut down. Most ESC's are rated at continuous current but can handle excess amp peak loads for a short duration okay.
