I was gonna get the PNP version, but in my experience I have found they usually put cheaper items in those versions. i.e. es50 instead of futaba s3114 which has twice the torque and is slightly faster. I know hobbycity has some cheap stuff, but I still think my choices have to be better than what will be supplied. The PNP is 189.00. My version will be 109+10.84+19.60+3.65(3)=150.39.
In my experience, you'll want to maximize torque, even going up to an APC 9x6, and if you do this, you may be overdriving this motor, which is rated at 14 amps peak.

I and another owner on this thread run this motor with a 9x6

Here's another turnigy that has a higher amp rating. Both of these will will work fine if you mount behind the firewall with the X mount in front of the firewall and use slightly longer screws.
