For those who may or may not be interested, bench tested 4 props on my C-185 Cessna...

GC3648-KV600
G&C 50 amp ESC
BEC disabled
Turnigy 2450mah 4S

Note that there is no other current draw off main flight battery:
RC Rx/servos has dedicated 6v 2000mah niMH batt

This is the standard E-Do Model prop
1070 x 3 EP plastic 3 blade
Approx cruise throttle:
4.2 amps
69 watts
WOT:
16 amps
256 watts

This is the prop I use on this Cessna
11 x 7E EMP nylon 2 blade
Approx cruise throttle:
6.8 amps
108.2 watts
WOT:
17.5 amps
260.1 watts

12 x 7 Turnigy woodie 2 blade
Approx cruise throttle:
5 amps
79.6 watts
WOT:
21 amps
325 watts

15 x 8 nylon 2 blade
Approx cruise throttle:
7 amps
106 watts
WOT:
36.6 amps
521 watts

That was static bench test.
No idea on the accuracy of the meter, cheapish eflight
No fingers were harmed during this test... once prop bitten, forever shy...

Interesting results actually, hope it helps someone...
