+1 to Pax but I prefer the 5400kv wind.
It's easier on the batteries (3s 1500), I get a four minute flight and it pushes the little jets plenty fast for me.

You can always use the rearward portion of the throttle, ya know. Hole Digger once told me that.
Don has less energetic winds in stock also. Give him a call and tell him your requirements. Can you say "Wemo combo"?

No. A 5400kv motor will draw 26 amps at wot. The linked motor will only run to 10 amps.

you will get the stock motor & EDF with the ARF model. A lot of people fly with the stock motor over in the main 50mm thread and find it fine. Just make sure you sand the blades down a bit so they dont rub the shroud.

Down side of that jet is the aileron linkages and servo make good drag brakes on landing.
Up side is it looks cool
