I would step up to at least a 50A esc. (I use a 60A) At the moment, I'm using a 5200 kV Custom CDR after swapping out the 4500 LSJS. With all 6 blades it's amp hungry but it's a thrust monster. I'm going to clip 3 blades to drop the draw.

I have flown mine on 3S and 4S. First was 3S on the Wicked 4800 motor then 4S on the Wicked 4000 motor. I personally like the 4S version much better but the 3S was nice (about 350 watts), 4S is about 550 watts. I now have custom made EDO rotor plugs for 3mm shafts. They are just like the stock ones but they fit a 3mm shaft so the Wikced motors when ordered with the EDO option will ship that way from now on so installing and removing the EDO rotor will be quite easy, no more press fit rotors.

I think you need a Don's Wicked 4800. That would give you the performance you're after on that size pack.

It would work great.... right up until about 2/3 throttle and then it would start a pretty wicked smoke show.

I know this one isn't in the same class as the EDO EDF F-4. But I built it in a couple days and it flys like a real jet. And I only have about $20. in it.Plus mine has the real amount of annahedral in the horz. stab anyway Gotta luv the the old war horse
