I have heard good things about the Scorpion setup.

The setup I had in my Supra was a Neu 1110 with a 6.7 gearbox and a 4S 1300 65C battery. This ran at about 700 watts average and had way more poop than would be needed to launch OOS at 200 meters into 15 mph or so. I would probably go with the 1107 next time. Walter Higgins is flying an 1107 with a 4.4 Maxon GB in his Maxa and it is more than adequate.

I have ordered a Neu 1107 with his new slimmed down 6.7 gearbox to replace the 1105 with the 4.4 Maxon that is now in it. I will be running it with a 4S 850 65C battery. I like big number gearboxes and I like 6mm prop shafts. And I need a little more power. I have measured and remeasured and it looks like the new gearbox will be an easy fit in the Maxa -- it will be a no-brainer in the Supra.

Good luck. You will love the Supra.

Happy Landings,
