I got around to doing another round of bench testing with the RC Timer 6x3x3 carbon prop and the Deal Extreme (DX) 2212/6 2700 Kv motor, one of our "hot" motors on our recommended parts list. Here it is ready to go in my RC Powers F-18 V3 :)
Test done with a Turnigy Plush 60A ESC with timing set to low, Zippy Flightmax 2200 3S 40C battery.
DX 2212/6 2700 Kv motor with RC Timer 6x3x3 carbon prop
50% throttle - 13.5A/166.0W producing 500 gr/17.6 oz of thrust;
100% throttle - 33.6A/385.4W producing 1000 gr/35.3 oz of thrust.
So the numbers are very similar to what I have tested with the 6x3 EMP two bladed prop, but I know this is a different motor, ESC and battery from when I bench tested the 6x3 EMP prop. It draws about 1 more amp at 50% throttle with the 6x3x3 and produces about 0.6 oz less thrust. At full throttle, it produces about 1.5 oz less thrust, but draws 2.6 oz less amps. So I'm excited to try this out at the field as well, given that the carbon prop is very stiff, I am hoping to see the bench numbers translate well to the field :)

Field test results to come soon when Mother Nature cooperates :)
