    6s is a lot of power to be runnin through 740kv motors. I would think 4s would be more suitable, no? 740kv x 22.2v= 16428 rpm's.

    740kv x 14.8v = 10,952 rpm's. I would think with 11" props the 4s would be the best results and more efficient.

    I think you'll be surprised how sporty it will be on 4S. Whatever lipo you plan on using, just get as high a C rating that the dimensions of the disco will allow.

    No the motors are new but they come with low quality bearings. This way I can document the birds performance and battery life before and after the bearings.
    Make sense then

    If my Google doesn't lie then them motors are rated 3-4s. You can run higher cell count on most brushless motors as long as you don't exceed max wattage and amp draw stated on paper, which is 250W and 24A for them motors. From pushing all the limits with my miniquad speed record I can roughly guess that you can put ~350W and ~30A on them motors at max throttle on 6s without toasting them as you're not gonna go at WOT all the time.
    But either way 12" looks way too big for 6s. If it recommends 11x5.5 max for 4s, then on 6s even 10" might be too big.
    If you're a noob, copy 1:1 what somebody already flies without too much questions, you'll find the answers later.
