I was trying out the motor, and found out it does not like a 25Amp ESC, at 3/4 throttle it quits and gets hot after a short burst, Ok so I tried a 30 Amp ESC, same thing Ok proccess of elimination, I tried a 40 Amp ESC It Likes That Better It get a little warm, so does the lipo at WOT, but, I dont think I will be running it at WOT for very long, just in short burst, as it puts out a lot of thrust, I was Amazed I think I will have to be careful here, as to not tear off the wing Yes you guessed it, I dont have a Wattmeter yet, its on Order its the Watts up meter, soon, as I do need it, this motor is really gulping the amps, I would not be surprised to see 600Watts Take care, Chellie
