Blunt Nose Versa Wing: Did I Choose the Right Motor for SPEEEEED?


Junior Member
Hi, All!
So, I'm hoping I picked a good motor that will give me sick speed on my Blunt Nose Versa Wing build, now in progress.
I'll be running a 4s 2250 LiPo, 60A BL Heli ESC, and a SunnySky 2820-6 / 920 KV. I know the KV is a bit low, but here's the stats on an APC 11x8 prop (which I know is big for a wing):
48 amps, 2500g of thrust, 710.4 Watts and efficiency of 3.519 g/W.

I know it's a big prop, but I know the BN conversion will fit it, easily. My thinking was to go up in stator/can/prop for more thrust and watts over KV. I know KV can equal speed, for sure, but I also think (if I'm not wrong) that bigger props under the right combo can also equal speed. I'm also running 4s on this motor, over 3s, so, there's that.

Anyone have a close comparison with feedback on this setup?

What do you all think???

I'm really struggling to fully wrap my understanding around motors, even though I've been reading on them for months now...
