Default Motor / Prop / LiPo / ESC combos ?

I think it might be interesting for many looking at Pushers - to know combo results ... so reasonable options can be picked for a model.

I've used low to very high KV motors ... amps draw from 10 ... to over 100A .... watts from 150 to over 1.2KW .....

Result is - I'm still fumbling around trying to decide what to use on next etc.

Interesting results come out as well ... the Funfighter 1950kv motor can give you better speed / performance than a 2500kv on same prop ... How ? Better amp / volt management ...

I'm interested if people can post up their combos ....

a) Motor name / size / kv
b) Prop
c) ESC
d) LiPo
and any speed / performance data ? as well as what size / weight model.

This will greatly help those who are looking to get started in this format. As well as build a database useful to all of us.

Once I get home - I will get my Wattmeter and RPM counter out - start testing my combos ....

Hopefully I can make up a table for those interested to have it ...
