brushed or brushless motor?

I'd also encourage you to read the thread in the parkflyers forum... pop some popcorn though... it's LOOOOONG read.

For brushless mods start about 2/3'rds of the way in.

If you want to go brushed get a little elctrifly C-7 esc and a 300mAH 2S lipo battery. For a charger use a basic lipo charger. You can also use the Cox NiMH and a Cox charger or similar to recharge it. Personally I'd do the lipo but that's what my entire fleet runs now so...

I have used the Cox battery 220maH Ni-MH on my F4U along with the Blue Arrow 5-Amp ESC for brushed motors. Part # BA-PP-5A. Both work well with the Cox Warbirds and the ESC has very good resolution on the throttle. The Charger i purchased was the Apache Smart Charger 2030. It will charge all types of batteries, Ni-Cad, Ni-MH or Li-poly. This was a very cost effective setup to get started.
