There used to be an outfit named Model Electronics Corp. in the Seattle area that had a line of brushed motors with names like War Emergency Power, using open gearboxes and fairly large props on 7-8 NiCds (this was the early to mid 90s). I had one of their Superboxes on an early Aveox BL motor, and it was a potent combination. They also had an amateur video of their products, and it demonstrated several of the Sureflite birds - including the P39 and larger Cub - being hauled around nicely by their systems. My guess is a modern outrunner equivalent turning an 11 - 12" prop and 3S lipo should be adequate.
