25/5/2013 did a new test w/ APC 8X4E: 900g Thrust, 193Wmax, 17,54Amax,10,8Vmin

With my improvised test bench I used all the props I have available to measure thrust, current and watts of this motor on a 3S 1300mAh battery. Quick recap at the end of the video.
The prop has been mounted upside down to generate a down force to be measured.
Measures are not really "scientific", but just to give an idea.
It was done to compare the force generated by the 2210N previously used on my Regal Extended 617g Depron airplane, and now substituted by this one for a better trhust.

Actually I decided to keep using the 9"X3,8" APC prop not using full throttle, even if I know it's a bit risky looking at the test result recap. see fo example: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mzt8tgbEVTs
