Ok. Tested the Master Airscrew 14X7 3 blade props using a watt meter and they were way too much for this motor. I eventually settled on an APC 2 blade 13X8 prop. This had the amps at 55 and the watts a little over 1,000 at full throttle (5 cell 4500ma).

This now leads to another question. In some places the specs say this motor is good for models that need up to 950 watts of power and other places say 800 watts of power. Since full power with the 13X8 prop produces a little over 1,000 watts, will this wattage figure damage the motor?
