That Scorpion motor looks very nice and the specs are very close to the Himax 3516-0840 motor.

My compliments to the pilot as well. Some fantastic flying there, for sure. In my short r/c career, I don't think I've been quite so pumped to get a plane! This hobby can be pretty addictive!

How about this thing;
http://www.hobbycity.com/hobbyking/s..._1000Kv_/_605w

It's about 10 grams heavier than the hi-maxx, but seems very akin to it (same diameter, 3mm longer, higher kv, but still in the area). And certainly for the price, 10 grams is survivable i feel

Peoples prop suggestions is generally 12x6 on 3S (top post says 2kg of thrust on that). One tried it with a 13x4 on 3S and felt it was too slow on a Fliton Edge 330, but the cub is not meant as a speed demon (not that that will stop us! ) Their amp measurements seem to suggest it'll eat and put out a tid bit more power, I guess it's just the higher kv and keeping the propeller big, a 11x5,5 could be good?.

Very very tempted to get this model when it comes out and make it super cheap version with htx900's, the motor i mentioned and a nice big fat (cheap) ESC in the 60 amp range for cool runnings.

Took a peek at the manual. The tail, canopy and fuse are the same as the EasyCub. The motor is now to be setup with down thrust. I would advise those ordering heavy motors larger than 28mm diameter motors to get a dremel handy and to order weights for the tail to balance out plane. I would also be concerned with the foam fuse nose holding up to heavy torque loads over time when added with some not so pretty landings. Taking a bit of precaution on the build, the pay off will be big. All-in-all this should be a very good seller for Multiplex and a great plane to own! I now own three Mulitiplex planes, the quality is outstanding and they fly great.

There needs to be a drool smilie to the right...phoenex, thanks for the info. It makes sense to have some of these components shared. Looks like the all-important wing and maybe motor (?) are different.. I'll await the arrival of this new plane!

The motor power setup is quite a bit different between the FunCub and EasyCub. The EasyCub is marketed for a beginner and setup that way. The FunCub on the other hand is designed as a Bush style plane with extra large wheels, very large outrunner and a big prop to match to allow Bush plane takeoffs. The videos for the FunCub shows just how that level of power can be utilized by an expert rc pilot. I didn't find out about the FunCub until I had already bought an EasyCub to convert to an all around sport plane flattening the wing, adding ailerons and flaps. I finnish it up awhile back. Below is a picture of the plane on floats.
