Hi Chris :ws: the 3548-07 is a low KV/RPM motor, 700Kv/RPM, for what you want, a 3548-09 would have been better, its a 900KV motor,

on the 3548-07 you can run a 12x8 or 12x10 prop on it with a 4 cell, but check it with a Wattmeter to be on the safe side.

also check your Lipo, it could be weak, check it against another lipo of about the same size, just to make sure its not a weak lipo, also check your dean connection and esc to motor connectors to make sure they are tight.

and something else you can do is to run a 5 cell with your 3548-07 that will wake it up :D with a 11x6 wood prop ;-) again, check it with a wattmeter to be on the safe side, Take care and have fun, Chellie

Sorry for the delay in replying. I was out of town.

Chellie answered your question beautifully....couldn't have done it better myself (thanks Chellie!). If you can't find the right prop at your LHS, we have a good selection in stock.

Thats Because I Learned from you Jeff :ws: with all the great Motor information that you provide on your motor pages with the thrust, prop, esc, and lipo recommendations, Keep up the great work Jeff, I send a lot of people to your Motor pages for information on props, esc, thrust , and motors for their planes, I have not ever heard anyone complain from the results of using your Motor Recommendations :D Take care and have fun, Chellie
