FYI, the stock, recommeded motor from Multiplex is 150 grams. The battery, with a lightweight 54 gram MicroDan, will have to move way forward.

The recommended motor for the FunCub weighs 132g and has a 5mm motor shaft.

While a light motor makes sense in an aerobatic competition model (like a 12g motor in a 100g F3P model), it makes no sense to put a 34g motor in a sports model weighing approx. 1000g. Putting the same motor in a high performance glider with retractable motor pod and it may make sense again.
