Turnigy 3548-900kv Power Draw Test

Lockdown here in Ontario is driving me a bit batty and parts I have on order for a project are stuck in tracking never-never-land so I decided to do a little test today. I got this Turnigy 3548-900kv and 40 amp esc on a used plane that I'm reconverting back to nitro. I was worried the 40 amps wasn't enough but it seems to be fine, on 3s at least. Prop is an APC 12x6E. It peaked at just over 29 amps. I might put it in my foam board Cherokee and turn it into a vertical rocket 😄 (or not).
