That's a good question. Its going to depend on what motor you intend to use. As well, you need to take into account surge amperage. On a model airplane, the prop provides a fairly steady load. On a wheeled vehicle, it takes a lot more current to accellerate from a stop, or if you get stuck or jambed. All the good rc car controllers have some thermal overload protection. A cheap rc plane controller likely doesnt. I smoked one once by using the wrong prop.
