I put a brushless 400 size motor in mine with a 3 cell 1800 battery and it'll scoot right along pretty good with a 8x6 prop. I am ordering a set of floats for it so I can fly it all winter in the snow too.
I have several planes of many different wing styles and such, but I bought this Mag because I trust Multiplex planes and I wanted a high wing cub. They fly so different than other configurations; I wanted to keep one in my fleet. Turns out this Mag was a great choice!
