I haz a http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/__12919__D2826_6_2200kv_Outrunner_Motor.html motor
a http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/uh_viewItem.asp?idProduct=6460 ESC
and a
http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/__8932__Turnigy_2200mAh_3S_20C_Lipo_Pack.html battery
and I am currently using a 6x2 prop. Now the motor sounds funny and it seems under powered. What happened? Did the motor burn? ESC burn?

In the instructions for the motor it says that i should use a 40A esc and for a 3 cell battery to use a 7x3 prop. But the current setup i have is from RCpowers, in their what to buy list.

What should be my new setup to not burn the motor and avoid this problem?

You're prop is 6x2? Or 6x4? 6x 4 is recommended setup

Is you're prop on the right way or maybe backwards? Numbers on the prop should be facing the forward direction.

The esc is on the low side but should do the trick.

Thank you for your response,
sorry, I meant to say 6x4. The prop has been put backwards as instructed so that it pushes the air. After some researching, if found out that the that the current diagram should be as follows: Battery>Esc>motor. I had been advised in the pdf plans by rcpowers to buy a 1600 mah 20c battery for this setup, but i bought a 2200 mah one 20c battery, as that would give me 44A instead of 32 A which is lower than the rating of my motor (which says the max is 34A). But could this have taken an opposite reaction. Now that I am going to buy some of this stuff again, i plan to buy the stuff as shown above, will any of this burn out?

Maestro, you said this is on the lower side, could that mean that there is still a chance of burning my motor? Cause if there is, then which esc rating would you advise?

Hi,

Even with the prop facing the wrong way you will feel it pushes, it will just not push as hard as it can, so double check the numbers on you're prop are facing the front of the plane.

The esc is not rated high enough.. You definitely should get 40a at least.

Look at the motor specs.

The lipo is sufficient for this setup, no problems there.

If you install the prop backwards, you spray the thrust. When the prop is correctly installed, the thrust is organized, the air velocity increases because you are funneling it through a smaller area. An improperly installed blade will have at lest 40% less power, its unorganized thrust moves slower because it’s the same amount of air moving through a much larger area.

I've never seen a 6X2, double check your numbers, you need a 6X4. The 6X4, in some cases, the motor runs a little too hot, some heat management may be needed. If you only fly WOT (wide open thottle) in spirts, you should be fine.
