Default ANYONE use a AXI 2820/10 on a 4 cell lipo????

I would like to use a 4 cell lipo on a AXI 2820/10!!
I have a Great Planes Combat Corsair with:
Motor AXI 2820-10, ESC Castle Creation Phoenix Ice Lite 50, Thunder Power 11.1 V 3 Cell 4350mha, APC 10 X 7, DX7 TX, spektrum RX.
AVG 30 amps, 300 W....peaks of 45amps, 400watts
i want to try out my 4 cell 4000mha...but according to axi the 2820/10 has Current capacity 42 A/60 s.....i did a static test with my 4 cell and it went to around 65 amps 900 watts an a 10X7 apc then i was able to use a 9X7 to drop it so my ESC Castle Creation Phoenix Ice Lite 50 could take it (barely) .....

My calculations and static tests says that 4 cell is too much for the 2820/10!!!!
Have some one use on a sport plane like mine or something similar, a Axi 2820/10 with 4 cell lipo????????

If so....can you all give me details???


THANKS

I mistakenly used a 2820 in a Great Planes Electrostik with a 4cell A123 pack. I was supposed to use a 2826. Anyway, two flights later, a fried motor. There was a lot for me to feel stupid about. I did replace the 2820 with a 2826 and have a beautiful flying Stik. The motor is cool after a flight and so is the battery pack. I believe their instruction sheet.
