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