Sorry for the super late reply! I think I've got this (1410kv version):
http://www.rchotdeals.com/Products/r...r/A2814-8.html

along with a 3s 2200mah battery and a 10x4.7 SF prop. I haven't checked how many amps or watts I'm pulling yet.

Yeah, I'll fly this plane in a good strong wind too...

I'm still flying mine now after about 1 1/2 years. Yes, I would buy another without a problem. I love flying mine....it's my take to the field every time plane. I like the speed it flies on the Rimfire motor...it pulls through all the aerobatic maneuvers at a steady, not too fast speed, which I like. It gives me so much more time than my other aerobatic planes to work on the control inputs during the maneuvers. I can make corrections and see the results, rather than racing through the line and having to turn to setup the next line. I'm sure it's that big open cowl up there creating all that drag that allows this.
The only thing I would like to change is a better motor for more pull through the verticals. I don't really want to go faster, just have more stump-pulling power. She runs out of steam on that hi-temp Electrifly motor. I use a APC 10x7E prop, 2200mAh 40c 3s lipo.
This is one of the only planes in my large fleet that I am comfortable flying inverted down the runway at low altitude. She is also the best for me at flying knife-edge down the runway. I can't for the life of me get my E-flite MUS to knife edge at all. This one is a piece of cake.
I do love this plane.

Yeah.... One of these days, "one of these days", this plane really deserves a lighter setup than what I've got in mine. I'm not in a hurry, but I'm curious how it'll be with a smaller motor and lighter battery.

well I have flown my su31 many flight and have had to replace the motor 3 times now seems to be eating them suspect the esc has something to do with it think it is always on brake even while flying motors seem to get very hot plane flies very fast and slick thru the air but like a small plane may do some mods to it in the future when I do i'll post pictures
