Help!
Help with my 6s setup

This is my first large plane on electric, I maiden the plane today. The plane flew great, just really no "get out of trouble power". Below is my setup and the max rpm that I pulled with a xoar electric 18-10 prop was 5600. Before I get flamed, my watt meter was not equipped with EC5 connectors. Will make some adapters this week. What watts/amps should I be looking for with my setup below. I want to fly on a single 6s pack because I have 4 of them for my heli. Flying style is strictly sport, no 3D. If I posted in wrong spot, please let me know where it should go.
Thanks in advance
Tom

You might have better luck asking the same question over on rcgroups.com on the extreme flight power thread.

In the castle settings go to fixed end points instead of auto and increase the travel on your radio. That's the most comment problem for not getting full power out of motors

Your RPMs seem really low for that setup.
Plug your info into this sheet to get a better idea of what to anticipate

What battery capacity, 5000mah?

Late getting back, the plane plane flys fantastic, for me. Like I said , sport flyer for right now, EF planes just get it done. Really pleased, cause I got a lot of 6s, 5000, from my heli. Thanks for all the advice.
