Here is a case where access to one of those wattmeters is really important. With the wattmeter, you can increase throttle from zero to full power, and see exactly how many amps your motor is pulling.
And, if it's headed well north of 80 Amps, you can easily back off throttle before killing anything.
Just going from an 18 inch to an 19 inch prop can make a real difference in the amperes, and watts pulled by your motor.
