300nm of torque from 103hp dosent that seem strange to some. 300nm is around 221 ft lb that more then a 13b so how the heck did they get some much out of a single rotor here is another strange one https://touch.trademe.co.nz/motors/listing/view/369433004 and they got 400nm from 165HP. 400nm is 295 footFoot-pound of torque.

Doesn't it seem strange to some that this is a 4 year old thread? The video doesn't even work anymore!
