No Motor Specifications listed for the RIMFIRE!

Guys,

I looked and looked and could not find any listed Motor Parameters for the recommended RIMFIRE motor that Great Planes recommends for this model. As a matter of fact if you look at the RIMFIRE site there is no motor parameters / specifications what so ever in order to estimate how many AMPs it will pull given a certain battery / propeller selection.

Here is the Tower Hobby Page showing the RIMFIRE:

The instruction manual does not show any motor parameters as well except general mounting methods etc...
http://manuals.hobbico.com/gpm/gpmg4590-4655-manual.pdf

Finally, the ELECTRIFLY page also does not have any motor parameters as well:

Please, if anyone else has this model and measured the AMP draw assuming using the recommended RIMFIRE motor then, please share with us here....

Seems like the person who had posted earlier in this thread came back and edited his postings for some reason and left the thread?
