Help!
New Power System for my Piper Cub J-3!

Hello everyone,

I just recently purchased a Great Planes Cub Parkflyer. It's a beautiful plane.

I have flown it already 3 times in the last 2 days.

It's Set-Up is a 280 Geared Motor with a 5nano ESC and a EFlite 7.4 650 mah Li-Po battery.

It flys nice and slow but it's climbing lacks.

I'm looking to improve on it's motor system not for speed, but for climbing power.



I like how this Brushless Motor from E-Flite http://www.hostingez.com/nph-proxy.c.../EFLM1200.html Will upgrade the power system as it recommends.

The light weight is also what i like and to compliment it would be a 20 Amp ESC.


I am concerned though with mounting. The Piper Cub does not have much room for the Cowling to fit on, and I hope this motor would allow for it to be fitted around it and maintain the classic look.

This my plane and it's Power system. The PLane weight about 15.9 oz.





Thanks


-Jay
