Darn! I should of asked you first so we can piggyback on shipping! Too late now!

Anyways, yes that motor will work just fine. I"m using a wayyyy smaller motor (118 grams)...trying to go on a diet and getting it as light as possible.

Let's get together and fly this baby warbird pattern style....!

What motor/esc/battery are you using in your other cub, any videos? Are you redoing the landing gear on this one or are you buying the eflite ones
A 20c battery would work fine.

My another friend Chris and me fly at the deltas, you should build some seaplanes too.

Yes I will beef this gear up and check all there spit welds. I am to cheap to replace them until they get totaled. In the other cub I used a HK 46 with a 50 amp esc and a 15x8 prop. Sorry no video yet, the weather around here has been pretty nasty.

Looked at that video again and your right he has a scorpion 3020-16 and a 15x6 prop. According to the data table for that motor he is pulling at least 800 watts. Also says the All up weight is 2.5 Kilos

Irplin- that donkey motor should make this fly no problem.

I saw this at HK last night and was in checkout till I saw the shipping cost. Still a good deal if the quality is consistently as good as people have reported it has been so far.

why are there so many different numbers for motors, is a HK 46 like an e-flite power 46 and is that like the g-force g46, what does 3020-16 mean? I was looking at the eflite super cub, which is about the same size/weight and it calls for a 25- to 32-size brushless Motor
- 60A ESC
- 4S 14.8V 2800-3200mAh LiPo Battery

This is the setup I am going with:

ESC: http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbycity/s...dProduct=12191

Motor: http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbycity/s...dProduct=16231

Prop: http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbycity/s...idProduct=9349

I will be using a 3S set up since thats what I have a lot of already. According to reviews I read, it should work out alright. What do you guys think? This is my first plane that doesn't already come with all its electronics, so I am a little nervous about it all working out.

Unless this HK plane is going to end up a bit heavy, I think a power 46 would be overkill. I have flown the eflite Supercub with a power 25 and it has plenty of power beyond scale. I think a power 32 would be more than enough for this plane.

I like lots of power, better too much than too little.

I'm leaning towards this motor with 4s and a 14x7 prop

Pulled the trigger on one as well . Too good of a deal to pass it.
I plan to use it with this motor and esc combination:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/C4240-KV890-...item35b88952e1

Good weight (around 200g motor + ESC) and enough torque for a 13x6 or 14x6 prop. I don't have big LiPOs so I will end up using 2 3S 2200 mA in parallel.

I am really curious to see the way will turn out. Any comments ?

cheers,
Marian
