There are cheaper alternatives to the Hacker and AXI motors and Im not referring to stuff from hobbyking like the rotomax 50cc or rotomac 100cc electric motors.
Ive got the ESM fw-190 dora9 and its at 82.5" wingspan plus fiberglass fuse compared to this TF one at around 87" all built up balsa...so it'll weigh less then my D9 which much heavier Sierra Giant scale retracts then those half cheapy robarts in the TF.
My motor is the 65cc rimfire which is capable of 7500 watts on 15s.....but most people run them on 12s at around 4000-5000 watts depending on the plane.
They work just fine and are considerably less expensive.
Ive got a 21x14 prop on my plane but also have a 23x12. The motor is capable of turning
The 50cc rimfire has already been proven in the larger esm me-109G which is 87" wingspan and flies that plane with ease.

Gun hood is hinged at the back like the real plane. Perfect access for batteries.
