Keeping it light is the trick. The IPS-A gearing, with a 8043 prop on a 3 cell 300-550mah lipo works great. Thats what mine uses. You can come in for a landing and be 1 ft off the ground, a couple feet before it touches down, then hit the power and it off again.
I'm using a 340mah and getting 20 minutes of flying without the batts even getting close to too-low.
Some of the guys who fly my other trainers on the IPS motor w/3 cell lipo, replaced the brushed motor after a while with a brushless and used the same batteries. The Wild Wing-Lite uses the same motor system. The motor & gearbox set up is only $14. and the GWS ESC 50 is $8-12. Butch
