Hi Chuck,

Thank you for the very detailed, and well laid out discussion that I am sure will help a lot of beginners.

I am beginner in flying RC planes myself. I purchased the Super Cub LP and I am just starting to get comfortable with the plane, however there is still a lot for me to learn.

Anyway, I will be looking to maybe upgrade the plane in the very near future and this info has been very helpful. As far as I know the Super Cub (used in your example) and the Super Cub LP have the same specifications regarding:

1) The all up weight of the plane.
2) The amount of ground clearance we have available for our prop.
3) The wingspan and wing area of our plane.

I have identified a Brushless 750kv outrunner motor. Just a little above the estimated 730kv. My queston is how do I identify whether there is a constant current rating of around 12.2 amps. I found this motor on HobbyKing, here is the link:

This particular model does not seem to favored based on the reviews I just saw, but perhaps you could just point me to what I should be looking at.

Or there is this 800kv model

Well, thanks for the info and looking forward to hearing back from you.
