Ok so I have a ]Turnigy Aerodrive SK3 - 3548- 1050kv The description says that the motor can run on 3s or 4s, its max load is 50A and its max power is 820 watts, HobbyKing also recommends a 70A ESC and props from 11 to 13 inches so I tried running on 4s using a 80A ESC and a 12x6 prop and the load was 100+Amps and 1500+ watts of power, of course the motor got hot really fast, using 3s with the same setup and the load was 70+Amps

Now I am running on 4s with a 10x5 prop and it is already reaching 57 Amps, my questions are:

does these numbers make sense? there is no way this motor is going to move a 12 inches prop without melting, why is my motor so out of specs? could it be my wattmeter, my ESC or the motor?

I don't know where to go from here, thank you for your help
