Should be one heck of a lot of fun once I get to flying it in a few weeks maybe, if the weather gets better.

Enjoy + subscribe for more! Lots of projects coming soon!

It will be interesting to learn how well the model flies later. Thanks.

How many amps did this pull? Stock, it pulled 12 amps, so I tried 6x4 and it pulled only 15 amps. Accordingly, I figure I could get a little more prop on it within my 20amp esc (25amp burst).

I'm thinking my ESC isn't putting all the power out that it can, so perhaps my amp load is a bit lower than yours might be.

Maybe I need 6x5.

I'm honestly not sure how many amps it pulled - it must've been getting closer to 30A and not down near 20 due to the prop/pitch but I couldn't tell you the exact measurements
