Hi all,
 
I have a funjet which flies on a 4.75 x 4.75. My problem is that I bust the prop and my LMS is outta stock( And its bank holiday!!!). i did get a 5 x 5 and 2 of the 5 x 4.75s.
Now I have run it on the watt meter and both pull near enough 32 amps, is this too close to the standard esc supplied with the funjet which I believe is 37 amp??
 
Cheers. I would love to fly it but am hesitant in case it blows the esc and the motor.
 
All parts are standard set up for rr.
 
Cheers
Gaz

It should be fine - and you can just throttle back a bit right?

Yeah it'll be fine on either as the power train will unload when it's flying and pull a few amps less than your measured 32.

If the weather is anything like it is here in Linclonshire Gaz it wouldn't really matter about using the props (which would be fine as above) The high wind has dropped Hurrah! Now its RAINING !!! Bank Holiday yeh great!
