Ahh yes another super cub question

Ok guys I have read many threads about the plane. Pretty much I am going brushless. I already have a new receiver and found a aluminum motor mount picked out

My question which is the best motor for it and do the cheaper ones work just as well? The local hobby store sells the eflight 480 for $50 which seems the going rate for it. But hell figured I would ask and see about the cheaper motors. Thanx and sorry for another thread on this as I know there are many just didnt see any about different motor choices

On one of my Super Cubs I'm running a Hobbypartz Exceed RC Alpha 480 (910kv). It pulls 245w at 22A on a 10x7 prop. I'm using (I think) a Mystery 30A ESC. That motor you linked would work but I (personally) would look for a lower kv one that can handle a larger prop. No problem using a higher rated ESC. I think I read here to use the 20% rule (get an ESC capable of handling 20% more than what the motor pulls).

Nice thanx I just didnt know if the eflight was better to use or not. They are out of stock on that one watcha think about this one? I do like the lower price. I have 2 super cubs and would be cool to do both brushless with that price I could

You could just get an appropriate motor and your aluminum mount all from HeadsupRC:

And your ESC at the same time. All shipped for about $3.00.
