That pretty much answers my question. I was curious if a 40amp ESC would with stand enough amps for the 11-5.5, without pushing it to the max.

I got over 40 amps out of a 72g omega with an 11.5.5 amp draw is very dependent on battery and speed control. I used an ice 50 and a 1300 mah thunderpower 45c

42amps was your peak, what was it after it dropped off?

.

sounds about what I remember getting. I was using as 12x6 I also recall the 72 was just about as much but several if us had them only last about 40 flights. Amazing. But the 103 did have more punch. I went back to a 72 after a 103 but really liked the power of the 103. another amazing motor. That one lasted until I sold the 42.

That was actually meant for Keith as he seems to be search gestapo today.

The watts up is a great meter...highly recommended.

They are good as long as you're within 8-10" max away from what ever you're measuring.

no, not too late. Great piece of input. I have a 40amp esc that I was going to use for the 103g motor. On the new 40 epp edge. I had the 40 amp esc laying around and didn't want to spend the $72 on the recommended 50Lite.
