Default ParkZone F4u Motor Upgrade

Okay so I upgraded to the power 15 for my PZ F4U, now I think I have too much power. with a 10x7 2 bladed prop, 4 cell 20-30c lipo, I am pulling 626watts, 40 amps and 16.56Volts. How can I drop the wattage? I tried a 3 cell lipo but the watts dropped too low, 229.

I am a bit new to electric coming from glow, but think I have two ideas that would work. Try switching to a 3 blade prop which will give you more thrust less speed, and should have less pull on the motor? If that doesn't work, I would say a smaller two blade prop. Give these a try and see what watts your pulling

Run 10x5 or 10x6 prop and that will do the trick
