They are put on to allow no interaction or inductance with other components in the plane, AFAIK.

I cartwheeled the cub a few days ago. Bent the shaft on the Park 480. So I broke out the exceed motor from a crashed plane and got it working. Ran over to D&B to get some E clips. Got it all mounted and tested. Waiting for the wind to go down so I can test it.
It should have more power than tho old motor.

This one...
I just figured I would spend 17 cents on a e clip and use a motor I had. Instead of paying some outragious price for a motor shaft, then wait for it to get here. I will eventually buy the shaft so I have a backup motor.

Hmm.
I wont have my watt-meter till tomorrow.

With http://www.hobbypartz.com/75m50-opti...0-910kv-2.html
this motor. A 10x6 prop, and a 3s 1300. I am guessing around 23 amps WOT.
What are your guys thoughts. Will I be ok with a 30 amp esc for the moment (test flight)?
Thanks
~Cole

P.S. Nice link.

Wattmeter is a great tool. 910kV is quite conservative, I would guess 18A. Either way you'll be fine with the 30A ESC.

Is there a prize for the closest guess ?

Hey...I already have a Champ, and rockin' on that thing...thinking about getting a Super Cub for grins...is it even worth it, or should I just move right on up to an aileron plane?

Thanks!

Depends on the style of flying you enjoy. The SC is a great relaxed flyer in stock form, but also a great experimental bed. I enjoy the 3-channel operation of the SC and believe I will keep one around for many years. The only changes I'm making on my second one (assembeld from parts) is to go brushless and using a 2.4gHz radio. I never get tired of flying the SC.

+1. A great plane to start the day or end it... just so easy, fun and relaxing.

I always fly my cub first to get my fingers warmed up.
It's also the last I fly so I can relax after sphincter tightening edf flights.
It's kinda like a cigarette after the act.
