    What is the correct prop size for AXI 2814/16

    Today I did a static test of three props for my 2814/16 that I've installed on my Bouncer 3D plane. The web site claims that 30A for 30S is the maximum current draw. They recommend an 11 X 5.5 Prop with 11.1V for 3D.

    Tested the 2814/16 with three electric props.

    10X5 prop, Amps 25, Watts 290, V 11.6 (NOTE: THE PLANE WOULD NOT PERFORM PROPERLY WITH THIS PROP)


    11X3.8 prop. Amps 35, Watts 404, V 11.54 (ALTHOUGH THE PROP IS LOWER PITCH THEN RECOMMENDED ON THE SITE, THE CURRENT WAS 35A, 5 AMPS MORE THEN RECOMMENDED)


    11X7 prop. Amps 44, Watts 500. V 11.36 (THIS IS OBVIOUSLY TO MUCH PITCH, SO NOT EVEN CONSIDERED, JUST WANTED TO DO A QUICK CHECK)

    My dilemma, if the current draw is to high on the 11X3.8 prop, how can they recommend an 11X5.5 prop???

    Any advice would be appreciated.
