HZ Super Cub progress

Finally decided to upgrade this thing. My friend has done of few brushless conversions on these planes, so I dropped it off at his house so he could build/adapt a motor mount for it. I got it back 24 hours later with everything already installed. Totally wasn't expecting that. Now I owe him some money.

Motor: E-Flight Park 450 890kv
ESC: E-Flight 25 Pro (EFLA1025)
Servos: HS81 (x2)
RX: AR500
Prop: MAS 10x7 3-blade

I'm going to hopefully use the stock HZ 1300mAh 3S batteries. 15C rating appears to be enough for this setup. The battery stayed reasonably cool in a bench test. I need to get my hands on a watt meter just to make sure my math is correct.

The stock SC electronics will live on in another project which will be revealed soon.

Clean build.
Looks good.
Would like to see some detail pics of the motor mount construction.
Folks here would likely love to see some pics too.

Next time I pull off the prop I'll take some pics. It's pretty simple...uses a $5 E-Flight stick mount.
