I decided that my 2nd super cub needed a park 480 and ailerons instead of simply running the stock motor/gearbox with Lipo and Spektrum.
This is what is powering it now...
1800-2200 mAh Lipo
E-flite 40amp esc
E-Flite Park 480
APC-E 10x5 prop
Now using GWS 10x6DD prop. (better vertical, better flight at slow speeds)
(4) S-75 Servos
AR6200 Receiver
Weight is 578 grams without battery (20.4 ounces)
