OK due to the excellent input from this thread, I will assume the power is close to battery voltage (ESC input) times the measured current. The RPM cannot predict motor voltage when loaded with a prop. However, it can determine speed (RPM X Pitch /1056).

In this case I am getting about 425 W to the motor; apparently still underpowered at 7 lbs weight. Sorry for the dual subject on this thread but the whole reason I bought the tach today was to try and get an idea of these parameters before I flew it.
