This is a wonderful model creation and I would say that should someone like to keep the stock motor setup for whatever reason...and not go with today's ever decreasing cost of brushless then, consider buying a lower Brushed motor/gearbox combination such as 3.75:1 ratio (A grearing) assuming we are talking about the EPS-300C power system which is essentially a Mabuchi 370, 7.2Volt motor. (The GWS EPS-350C are Mabuchi 370, 6Volt motors with higher Kv and thus higher Amp draw). Of course this is using 8-cells, AAA-size Ni-MH's for those that are daring to be completely Stock

Your airspeed would increase with a 8X6 propeller so, you would need to fly her on the wing as you will not have the thrust to do 3D. It would be strickly a Sport Flyer model with this power setup.

However, for those that like to use 3-cell, Li-POLYs then, I would consider this GWS power Stock related setup:

and continue to use the smaller 8X6 propeller for even better results in performance out of a Brushed - geared setup.

You might find these in local hobby stores on Sale so, look around.
