This morning, a buddy of mine and I hit my favorite lake to get in some end of the season float flying. Both of us have similar setups on our Hobby Zone Super cubs: E-Flite Park 480 1020KV motors, with motor mounts from: http://www.customrcparts.com/ stock type servos, Electricfly ESC's. Our radios are differ though, he flies on 72mHz and myself on the 2.4 gHz.
As you might imagine, the Park 480 is extreme over kill in the power department, that being said, we wouldn't have it any other way. Take-off's with wheels can be done in very short order (3-4 feet) and with floats around 5 feet. (See pics below for demonstration of such capability.) Flight times if being conservative with the throttle can be stretched to atleast 20 min. Vertical is near unlimited, and one of these days, I'll get a pic of my Cub hovering (yep, it can do that).
