Default Gearbox and prop questions

Just got my new 3 cell lipo 1300 mah 15C. But i havent recieved the outrunner motor yet. I have a dmz cherokee ep 400, which stock brings a speed 400 motor with a 4.25:1 gearbox ratio. I use a 20 amp gws speed controller. Just wondering with a 9x4.7 gws prop what would be with amp draw with a 3 cell lipo. Just so i know how much i can push it without destroying the esc,motor, and new lipo. Thanks in advance.n

Default RE: Gearbox and prop questions

The DMZ EP 400 series use geared Speed 400 power systems meant for either a 6-7 NiCd/NiMH pack or a 2-cell LiPo pack. To power the stock geared 370 motor, I used a Super 20 ESC and a 2-cell 910mAh Cellpro pack from FMA Direct. The power system delivered 74 watts at 10.5amps on full throttle.
