Welcome Dan
I can't give you a direect answer, but keep in mind that ...
Current drawn is proportional to Kv cubed (and proportional to pitch¹, voltage squared , diameter⁴ ).

People upgrade all the time with that motor. But you will need to go get a bigger esc.

Anyone else seeing/getting huge smiley's in my replies above, instead of normal size?

Edit:
Smiley problem solved.

What I’ve read so far is to upgrade to the eflite power 60 470kv, not the 400. Also upgrade to the castle creation talon 90.
