I know the monster 32 is a 42-50. I'm sure hobbyking may have a good quality 42-50. I don't know all of their brands but this seems to have had a few good reviews:

I have a 35-48 of the same make and it works very well.

Apart from that, i buy my stuff from hobbypartz or Headsup Rc. Here's a 42-48.

I'm using the 42-48 from HeadsupRC. Almost the same specs as the Monster 32.
More than enough power for this plane on 3s. Will handle 4s if you want to try 3D-ing with the Cub.

I've completed structural repairs to my L-4. The horizontal stab broke in a few spots so I need to basically re-cover it. I'm either going to cover it all with Litespan and and paint in the dull olive drab again or just get some olive drab monokote and it will be shinnier than the rest of the plane. I don't have a cowl yet but will probably try to fly it again this weekend. I still need to put the right/down thrust in the motor.

For motor I put the 35-48 from headsup rc in it. I'm running it with 3300 3s.
I also have 4s to try but need to put a UBEC in as the Hyperion Atlas ESC has a linear BEC that won't work well with 4S and 4 Servos.

The specs for the 35-48 say it's good for 70oz plane which mine is pretty close too since I opted not to put the flaps in. As I have stated before, it's a Cub not a Reno Air Racer...

I have an Emax motor that might be more appropriate for it. I'll look into swapping it out. I was going to use it on my CMP T-34 but it is only rated for 3s or 4s and I will most likely use 5s in it.

I got some EMP-style 13X8 props from RC timer to try.

I didn't get my Hobbypartz order in time either... Both the motor and the 60a ESC were sold out...

So I ordered this from Hobbyking

TR-4250 600kv

The 700kv is the better match, but I wanted to try the lower kv and larger prop...
EDIT: If You swarm sale the 700kv one it's $16.80


Turnigy Brushless ESC 85A w/ 5A SBEC

It's overkill, but I like the 5A SBEC and the on/off switch with this Speed Control. The price is good and my brother likes the one he uses in his 70inch slick.

Now I'm just waiting on the slow boat from China...

They only have certain items in the USA location and you have to order those specifically. I ordered some batteries and had them in 3 days. I have another order for items from China and its been almost 2 weeks and not here yet.

Unless you order from the HK@ USA site, it can take about 2 weeks from the time the order was *shipped* out their door. For some reason it seems to take about 3 days for it clear through the local customs before it even gets moving. Oh well....

I use HobbyKing anyway because i try to plan ahead and use the newest order later on for that next project or build. Plus the prices are really the most rock bottom i have found for quality RC airplane electronics merchandise.

HeadsUpRC.com is my latest rave for great shipping cost and speed. I would consider their low prices an excellent buy for conus. Their website product useage advice is the best i know of and certainly must contribute to their success.

The configuration on these motors is backwards. You will have to switch the prop shaft around to get it to work (or build an elaborite auxilary motor mount). That is why I really wanted the MP 32. No fiddling required...

So I broke down last night and ordered the E-Flight Power 32

Actually they work fine, you put the hub on the front side and the X-mount at the back. The motor I have is the same configuration.

Here are some pictures for the MP 32 on my piper. I am still in the progress of putting it together.

Did it (1) come with the motor box and (2) are the thrust angles correct?

That's the Cub but same as L-4 minus paint. Yes on the motor box but as mentioned in this thread it has 2 deg right and 0 vertical. I'm adding 2 deg more right and 2 down.
