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.
Seven pounds at 425 watts? I'd be reluctant to fly it off of grass.
