What prop and motor should I use?


I have the stock 3536-KV850 motor with the 11X6 3 blade prop. I want to soup it up so it goes faster and so it will fly better with a 100 gram camera mounted on top.

I was thinking a 25 power 1250Kv motor with a 10.5 x 7 prop 3 blade. But I'm probably wrong and that would just ruin the motor and esc..

Does anyone have any suggestions before I do something stupid? I don't know much about power systems but I want to learn as much as I can.

Plane Weight: 1520 grams, 56 oz, 3.4 Lbs
Model: 1410mm FMS sky trainer 182

If anyone can help, THANK YOU!

ps. The 11X6 stock propeller is big, only about an inch from the ground, and I've broken 3 already from bouncy landings.. Could I use a higher kv motor with a slightly smaller prop and still get more power?

You might wish to play with the figures in this calculator, it's useful for comparison purposes.
