I tried a Eflite Park 480 950KV, it will pull the plane but the climbs are not very impressive. So now I have an Eflite power 10 in the nose of mine. Pulls 37 amps with a 12x6 folder on the bench. Not alot of power in hotliner terms, but, I get unlimited vertical and impresses the onlookers. My plane came out very tail heavy, The outrunners just weren't enough weight up front and I hate to add dead weight to a plane, so I put 2 3S 2100mah packs in parallel. ( and I still needed ballast). I get lots of flight time and the packs never even get warm. The plane still thermals OK even with the weight of the extra battery
