Ok... so I was in Jacksonville and saw an alternate prop that definitely will not cause problems. It's an Xoar 23x8. Based on 24x12, I should be fine with it if the 26x12 is too much for the motor.

The DLUX 10 amp voltage regulator has one of these. It's a "remove before flight" streamer. Kinda cool, but yanking it out powers on the rec and servos.

Wiring Question on this....

Would the quality (or lack of it) of wiring inhibit a motor from ever being able to draw 100 amps? (I'm guessing YES.)

If so, what would happen to the ESC?
