I have a Turnigy G32 in a Charlesworth K18 spinning a 14"x8" Aeronaut Cam prop. Flies ok on 3s but better on 4S. Yesterday I had 3 climbs to 400' that took 55% from a 3300 4s Turnigy Nano-Tech battery, I don't remember how many watts and I have misplaced my meter so unable to check just now. I use a separate airborne pack.
