It actually comes with the floats.

I also know from hangin' out in another forum that that 10x8 prop will, more often than not, fry the stock ESC if run WOT for very long...

one of the main reasons for me deciding to go brushless before even flying it, which is then an excuse to upgrade the ESC

Check your motor to esc (black box) connectors. They have been known to act up.
OK Will do. thanks....

Yikes!! well, thats why I came here to ask. seemed odd that it would cut out only with that prop on it. Just picked up the floats yesterday and yes they come with the 10X8. I picked up a 10X8 a few days ago just to try it out, and thats when I observed the problem. My plan is to build a brushless cub from scratch so maybe I will just test out the floats on the stock unit and then bench them untill I finish the brushless.. Thanks all for the help...

During testing with the stock unit, do you think it would be a good idea to have the throttle trim set at its minimum setting?

Great, thanks for the conflicting advice guys haha.

480 it is then? I just dont know anymore. Its only a few $$ more so why not I guess.

Pair it with a 30a esc? What about batteries? Gonna make an order soon along with a Accucel 6 I'm thinking.

30A esc is sufficient for 480. you can fly with 2200 batts or even use the stock 1300.

OH!!!! Making my mind slow.
Thats why i dont fac with the big Four Oh.....Bro!!!

Not sure how many amps that 480 can pull with a big prop. I would advise a big Four Oh 40a esc for both the 450 and 480 motors. Always good to go larger on the esc. Price and weight will not be much different.

For batteries most guys seem to like 2200mah size. Can go with 1800 if youre trying to build it light and floaty.

I did warn ya!
Very much a personal preference so I knew you'd get advocates from both camps!
Whatever you do you'll love it.
Happy Flying!!!

One nice thing about asking for advice on these forums is that you find out eventually that the are many right ways to do things. Never expect one perfect answer.

Nope won't work. In a woman's eyes the only time you are right is when you are admitting you were wrong.

Ok I have a spare Orange Rx now to fit to the cub, have a spare 30a esc from my skyraider and just ordered 2 hobbyking 10g analogue servos for the aileron mod.

Are these the correct servos and in the fullness of time I should be I looking for a brushless outrunner in the 200w range / 28mm dia. Something like the turnigy sk3. Have I got it correct?

Thanks.
