Bear in mind that watts in = watts out, so if someone is throwing 1200 watts into the system the likelihood that the power is actually going to the prop is extremely low (so a low efficiency). Whats going on likely is that more watts is being transferred to heat instead of the prop, while this isn't necessarly bad its not the best and the motrofly motors are some of the best when it comes to efficiency. People often up the prop size 1in and seemingly find out that they are getting the same run times.
Since amps = heat most people don't recognize this and just go for a high amp high watt setup while missing the most important thing, prop RPM. You really want the highest RPM you can get out of a prop size as you will develop more thrust. I've tried to figure out what RPM's the omega 130g gives for 3s and 4s prop setups but I haven't gotten and answer.We've been talking about prop and motor setups over in the extreme flight power systems setup and we seem to have nailed down the ideal combo for the 48" planes. Thats a custom wound 2820 down to 600-625KV motor on 5s with a 13x7 xoar prop.
That setup is good for about
It seems to work really well
There are some heathens that think a 683 14x7 4s setup is ideal also
