Motor Run-up With Prop

We completed our first motor run-up with the prop installed.  With our small 24S, 6.6Ah test pack we were able to peak at about 7kW before our 60A circuit breaker cut-out.  The graph below depicts data that was logged on the motor controller for a run not shown in the video.  The max power attained in the video footage tops out at about 4kW.  We are not sure why the data captured for current (and power) is so noisy.  We will have to investigate.

Data logged from a test run. Investigation as to why the current values are so noisy are underway.
