ok just got done with more testing, with no equipment, and all results are just guessing.
well through on the apc 10x10e prop it is a little different then the 11x7e. the nose lifts. was kinda bad at full throttle, but if i let off the power then it was to slow for what i wanted.i had to trimmed her out after that. i think the 10x10e is more power house prop, she climbs faster and does have a bit more speed. now i didn't like the way the bird flew with this prop. she sucked the juice down to quick didn't make anything hot or even warm just shorter flight time, also just wasn't a nice smooth flight ether. that is the best i could do you have to try them both to see what i mean. my vote is still the 11x7e apc this was all stock set up 2200 25c 3s

pps. this was parked in my usual flying spot today. It's a wing, but from what I have no idea...
It looks big, but still, your pretty much obligated to slap a motor and some servos on it and fly it!!!!!

Better use 2 motors and a couple big batteries

If it stops raining I am going to a new club today to fly.

Will start with my 900 mah battery and take it easy.
put in a 3 cell and fly like normal

then when the right time occurs I will put in the 4 cell and surprise lots of people with my corsair.

no one will know what hit them, because mine is still stock pnp as I had before except now for the spar.. I am going to trick those guys lol

Got to get a streamer for it so I will know which is mine.

No 10X10's to be found for my corsair
within 50 miles or more from where I live

Will try to order a few

I have the "watts up" or something like that everyone should have
it is a must

but for my power set ups I have a general idea what it pulls from previos testings and now just use the old fashioned feel with my hand for temperature test

if it is hot it is not a good thing

your static tests will be scewed, because of the burst of a fresh battery, voltage(etc.), which battery you use etc. test a few props or maybe 10 of them to see how the test results are, write them down.

now go back and do it again. see if the figures are the same!

very light foamy (stock corsair), and say someone who has added 5 oz or so the the plane with the same set up, will have same static results but in the air it will be a different ball game.

even if your system works really well as you set it up and you change to a higher mah battery you are adding weight and have to be carefull of over heating due to weight

safety question?

This is a 2200 battery from parkzone, I have never had one puff up on me before.

Is this unsafe or am I ok?

going to be used in my corsair today

after i puffed mine i just hammered it to death about 35 flight in a prakzone p-51 with the 6 series 2700kv motor 10x7 e-flight prop. the batter did die not from puffing but i pulled a wire out removing from my charger when i was in a hurry. remember i am not all that bright you should get rid of it for safety after awhile

Do not use a puffed batt...is the price of a battery worth the loss of your plane or your car you are transporting the batt in..if it puffed it is going bad and can self ignite at any time if you keep charging it or running it..send it back to Horizon.
