The free-flight version is powered by 2 cell NiCd stock. If you put 2 cell LiPo it sure would perform like brushless, but the question is for how long? What is the amp draw with the stock prop?
It is NOT the same motor as the hobbico free-flight model.
With my 2 cell pack (kokam 340) it draws right around 3 amps at max throttle on the bench.
