Motor----3542 headsuprc
ESC----Emax 50 amp
Props----APC 11x5.5/11x7/13x4 so far 12x8 is the best, next to try is 13x6.5 and 13x8
Aileron/Flaps----tower pro sg90 mg/ Futaba s3114
Gear/wheels---- stock with a suspension mod using Dubro collars 3.0x16mm cap screws and elastic bands crossed between the legs

light cub AUW---->1131 grams (includes turnigy 3s 2200 30c lipo)
Had to make a new gear mount out of ply/balsa/nylon as the stock mount broke. I did not weigh it with the stock gear mount before I broke it.

ski cub AUW---->1376 grams, same battery.


ps, my scale may be wrong, seems lighter than that. and I switched back to 3542 motor, more power is more better!
