Yo can't really predict watts JUST from kV and voltage... the prop used and the motor's capabilities will have a big effect.

Same kv and voltage can give very different results with a 6X4 vs a 12X8 on the same motor. change motor and you get completely different results again.

A motor, ESC, prop and battery add up to a power system. Change one part and you potentially changed everything.

I am constantly told that I'm doing it wrong using relatively low kV motors with big props... but I get the results I want.
